It's time for our new challenge at Cardz 4 Guyz, and this week we would like to see Books or Book Paper in your design.
I must admit I struggled with this at first. Although I love to see altered and folded books, I can't bear to do that myself; I don't like to write in books, or turn the page corners down, or do anything to hurt them. In fact when I thought about making an altered book, it made me want to rush to my books, all 5 bookcases full of them, and fling my arms around them to protect them!
Luckily my Dovecraft Curiosity Corner collection of goodies contains some newsprint paper and paper with newsprint leaves on it. so although it's technically imitation newspaper rather than books, I am claiming artistic license!
I fussy cut the leaves from two different sizes of paper, leaving a border around them so they would stand out from the background. My choice of image is determined by the fact that I wanted to use this gorgeous vintage bicycle ribbon I won in a recent challenge - isn't it super? The image itself is a die cut from an old Hunkydory kit.
