Thank you for all the love shared here last week!. Finally, the rain came, we had clear blue sky and no haze for the last few days :). Strangely enough though, I started to cough and may lose my voice soon!. [I didn't go out much last week because of the haze].
It got so dark by 3 p.m today, I have to share this.
15 minutes later, thunder and all. Thank you, heavens!.
It is easy to guess what I'm thankful for this week. Yes, THE RAIN!. My gratitude book will be a celebration of rain clouds & the cooling raindrops :).
Winning colors @ Summer of Color this week are charcoal grey & light pink. I think they are perfect for my gloomy tribute. Here's what I made;
My tiny book measures 2" X 3".
I cut out dark grey denim into a few small rectangles, folded and stacked them like tacos, then sewn individual pages at the spine, with tiny beads.
Gathers on the spine.
I'd stuffed trimmings, lace, gauze, pearl beads in between the denim pages for dimension. So much fun!.
Love looking at these lasagna.
I stitched on the denim with light pink floss, "So thankful for the falling rain".
I sewn these words on every page before stuffing with trimmings and clamped them closed. That way, the messy threads underneath will be hidden.
I hope you enjoyed my rain book tutorial! And dear rain, do come again :). Have a great week, everyone!. I'll visit you soon. Hugs.
