In the Library

It's my lucky turn to host the challenge at Craft Room Challenge, I'm pretty excited because our sponsor for this challenge is Rogue Redhead Designs (RRD), And both I and Helene this challenge's Guest Designer are on the Team for RRD :-)

I've chosen the theme In The Library, so I'd love to see your creations with books, text, mini books etc.

I've altered an old book that I've had sitting on my studio shelf for years, waiting to be altered ;) My classes with Finnabair have left me seriously inspired to get altering, and so I make no apology for her heavy influence with this piece. I've used the RRD set Relish Reading one of my all time favs.

Front Cover
Heaps of Flowers and Metal Hardware on here, and then Finnabairs tricks to blend everything together, for an organic look.

Inside I've decorated some of the pages, Here's at the back of the book:

Inside Book

I added a little cut away, and then stamped and added some prettiness. Please hop over to the Craft Room and check out the stunning DT work, they've done me proud.

I'm entering this over at  Simon says Stamp and Show- Anything Goes :-)

And the Artistic Stamper Blog- Texture :-)

Unruly Reader Quest 1 -  Metal Harware :-)
