I have just completed my second November's DT project for Scrappingville. It's a clear acrylic album called 'Barely There' Doodle Book. I enjoyed making transparent things lately and this clear mini album is just another fun book to make.
I made this album thinking about my favorite things to do in the winter months. Things that warmed my heart. Memories of winter pasts. I used magazine clippings [Mollie Makes, Country Homes, Country Living, Martha Stewart Living & Take Ten] to tell the story :).
Not only I doodled with wild abandon on these clear pages, I made my own screen prints too :). Simply stamped a transparency with acrylic paint using either foam or clear stamps. Be sure to use paint sparingly for crisp images.
I worked from back page to the front so I could see the pages build-up as I go along. And then I randomly doodled around the photos with black sharpie.
Sharing a few pages in my book;
"My day starts after COFFEE, anything else can wait".
'The Sound of Music' is my all-time favorite movie. I could sing-along to my heart's content. Here, I stamped DO, RE, ME ... following the song :).
I remembered having ONLY Sara Lee's strawberry French cheesecake [yes, the whole thing] for dinner one cold night. All for myself :). YUMM!.
We roller blade in the summer and ice skate in wintertime. Indoor, of course. Invigorating!. Did I tell you, I scrapped both my knees when I first tried rollerblading?. Silly girl. Walked like an Egyptian that whole month :).
It's too early for snow season but hey, it's never too early to make those gifts. Wish you have a great Thanksgiving this week!. Scrumptious food :).
I'll be teaching the doodle book this month & in December. Come play with us @ Scrappingville. Do check our class schedule for details. Hugs.
