Maze Book

I thought it might be nice to make Rachael and her Mum a little maze book with some photo's of the wedding. Now knowing how I always make a hash of things I decided to make myself one first and learn by any mistakes, LOL, well I learnt a few things, like stick your photo's on before adding the covers and leave a slightly bigger gap for the covers so it opens out easier but overall I am quite chuffed with it and if anyone should ask if  have any photo's of the wedding I can whip this out of my bag LOL.

I made the front and back cover the same but may add Rachael and Marc's initials to the front later. First up I paint several layers of deep purple paint onto the grey card you get in the back of paper packs, then stamped and embossed with clear powder and finally dry brushed silver paint over that. A technique Carol taught us at one of her classes.

and some shocking bad photo's of the inside.

For those who aren't familiar with maze books they are made from 1 piece of 12 x 12 paper or card and folded and cut to create the pages.

Off to crop tomorrow and shall be making the next 2 LOl.

Dogs are all well and in in fact dear old Jim is now going on 2 yup that's right 2 short walks a day. WTG JIM xx
