Bobbin Book at PaperArtsy

Hi everyone, I always get excited when I have a post over on the PaperArtsy blog and tonight I'm sharing a little labour of love. I've made a mini book from a wooden reel that I've had in my stash and as serendipity would have it I'm combining some of the new Seth Apter paints (Set 3) with Alison Bomber's wonderful word plates.....I 'reely' enjoyed making this!


 Butter, Double Denim, Magic Moss and Blue Lagoon work beautifully together.


Hop across to the PaperArtsy blog for lots of photos. 

Lastly, I'm hoping this fits the bill for the February mini album makers challenge, it's on a spool but it's still a handmade book of sorts and it's certainly mini....


Thanks for stopping by. Ruth x

Your choices of Seth's paint colors, all the beautiful splats of fun, ziggy sttitching and the wonderful stamps have made this a true "Little Treasure" (excuse the pun). I am in awe. Thank you for sharing your wonderful inspiration.
