Craft Hoarders Anonymous Entry

Graphic 45 ~ By the SEA

I call this "Postcards from the Sea!"

Inside there are pockets to hold all the postcards in the Graphic 45 8x8 pad.

For this project I used my handmade papers and Graphic 45 By the Sea 8x8 paper pad. The background of the book is spritz with blue and egg shell, with brown ink distressing the edges. The front and back chipboard are covered with hand made papers before adding the wonderful By the Sea papers. Added to the cover are small sea shells with a bit of Stickles. The final touch is a vintage ribbon.


Supplies:
Handmade Paper
Arnold Grummer's Complete Paper Mill Kit
Arnold Grummer's Accordion Fold Book
Graphic 45 - By the Sea 8X8 pad
Ink - Brown and Blue
Small shells from stash
