Colorful minibook

Every once in a while my brother and I go on these ‘adventures’. Last month we went to shop for a new pair of glasses, but instead of buying the glasses, we walked along an amazing sculpture route in the middle of Amsterdam! I love these kinds of unexpected excursions and I wanted to create a minibook with all the cool iPhone photo’s I took that afternoon.

Here’s how I created my minibook:

1. Cut 12 sheets of watercolor paper into pieces of 12 x 6,3 inches and fold them in half.

2. Take the myStampBOX Funky Circles – small box set and stamp and emboss all pages with embossing ink and Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel (UTEE).

3. Ink all pages with Distress Inks. I currently seem to have a rainbow crush, so I urgently needed to use all colors of the rainbow :-) .

4. Have fun splattering (spray) ink all over the pages!

5. Next step are the covers. Cut two pieces of cardboard to size and spray one side of each with spray ink. I decided to cover the other side with white cardstock, that I had stamped with the myStampBOX Border Lines set. Adhere the cardstock to the cardboard, cover that with embossing ink and emboss it with UTEE. Repeat until you’re happy with the result. For me: three coats.

6. Bind the minibook with a Bind-It-All.

7. Adhere the photo’s, write a few words and stamp the title on the title page with the myStampBOX Blueberry Stencil Alphabet.

Here’s the finished project:

Have a great day! Surprise yourself and go somewhere unexpected! ;-)
