Second Page for First MiniBook

minibook i can do all things page w border.jpgI can see how it is possible to become obsessed with MiniBooks. For me, they will not replace my regular scrapbook albums, but I can see using this format for special little “extras.” My first attempt at a MiniBook is a Scripture of the Month book. I started with May (see previous post) and will work back to January and then be on track for the rest of the year.

For this album, I am using the Tim Holtz 6x6 grunge board book, with kraft and black for the major colors (with an accent color on each page). For this page, I used the new spring distress ink from TH, Peacock Feathers. I used Broken China stain on resist paper for the tag. I took numerous photos trying to capture the true colors, but was not really successful. All the “teal” colors on the page are the Peacock Feather color, but the different elements picked up the color differently on camera.

This has always been one of my favorite verses, and I will leave this one out on a stand for a month and then swap with the next one. Eventually each page will go into the “book.”

The flower was made from kraft glassine paper and book text and then inked. The verse is a wood stamp from Hobby Lobby.

Happy Memorial Day! I’m always thankful for the folks like my darling hubby who served our country in the military, especially in time of war.
