Bonjour bloggers, my theme today is a little on the French side! My Daughter, Sophie, has just returned from a little trip across the water. It was her very first trip abroad on her own (with school). I was a little anxious, to say the least but she is home safe and sound.
Once dried I doodled using a Posca pen. I used the French words and The Eifel tower to stamp directly onto the book cover. The stamps are from Julie Nutting 'bonjour' set, I didn't use the doll from the set but selected another that was big enough for my project. I coloured the doll using Inktence pencils and collaged her on to the cover.
I asked Sophie to keep her tickets and leaflets etc and said that we could do something special with them upon her return. I decided to make a memory book where she can keep her special treasures and photos.
I painted the book cover in Dylusion London blue, white linen and cherry pie. Using Tim Holtz stencils and the above paint I stencilled over the page.
All ready to hand over to Sophie to create her book of memories.
Thank you for stopping by today.
