An interesting addition to this chunky book, are all the wonderful art charms. I was lucky enough to win a contest in my art charms group and received this lovely set of love themed charms. It arrived as a necklace, but I knew it would become journal jewelry as soon as I realized I had the perfect opportunity to combine all of my Valentine loot.
I used several of Tim Holtz's charm clips to add my charms to my books. These are the perfect tool for doing this task, I am saddened that they are discontinued.
I really love the page shown above. The little bunting is just perfect and the imagery and embellishments are just darling.
I have to say that our group is a really talented one. Each page has so many elements, I see something new to enjoy each time I flip through the book.
This page is interactive. The little paper doll can be removed and her closet on the back of the page opens. I really appreciate this kind of work as I love art that engages the observer.
Here is another page with a tuck in. You can pull the little Valentine out of it's cute little envelope. I also love the rosettes and pretty trims.
I am going to enter my little book in this week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show. Two weeks ago, I was lucky enough to win their weekly drawing for a $50 gift certificate. I had a blast shopping and I can't wait to use the goods I purchased with my winnings.
