Tiny Book of You

Hello.  Welcome.  I had a plan to join the PaperArtsy challenges this term, but it's Sunday afternoon and it's Books, which ain't really something I do.  But this week something happened and I decided I would try and make a Little Book.  That's what I call those books you fold from a single piece of A4 paper.  I have made a couple in the past and I always give them away.  So today I thought I'd make one of those, but go tiny!!

OK, so here's my finished folded book.  Yep, tiny!!  It's 3 x 4.5cm.  Now, for such a small thing there are a lot of photos!  I'll try not to talk too much.  

I used a piece of handmade paper and texture paste through a Stamplorations stencil inspired by the stenciling and round forms Anneke used in her art journal.  I folded once horizontally and twice vertically and then cut along the middle line, folded and glued to give the above little book.  Then I decorated it for friend. 

All stamps are from Rubber Dance Just A Note set, stamped and embossed with black powder on paper coloured with red brusho and ripped to show the white edge.  Then I added pale blue die cut Memory Box Tiny Bubbles.   I ripped the heart from the same paper and added a faux stitch edge.  This book is a reflection on things broken and I haven't made it to or expect it to last forever.  All things are transitory and some things are best experienced and discarded.  But sometimes it's nice to know somebody noticed and cared. 

Also joining up to the CASual Fridays Challenge #180 Friendship.  Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
