"A La Mer" workshop sample book WARNING - picture heavy!!

I've been a busy girl lately...

...having lots and lots of fun making some more sample books for my workshops!

This one is called "A La Mer".

It's a ring-bound book, using a Prima Marketing 6 x 6 paper collection entitled "French Riviera" ...

...and some others from paper stash pads that I got in The Works.

Pages were made out of leftover 6 x 6 envelopes...

...and I made little pull-outs for each one so that personal memories can be added in.

There are lots of little pockets and storage spaces too. Ideal for all the printed photos and ephemera.

Because I'm a stitcher I also had to include some stenciled and stitched pieces...

...shells and sea-horses...

...done with Markal Paintstiks and my favourite Empress Mills Metallic Thread.


Lots of piccies coming up!


























It's not quite finished yet...

...I want to include more personal extra bits and bobs....

The next two are already on the worktable though!

Oh Happy Days!!! :-D

I hope you are all as happy as I am right now
