Been playing again! I was in Home Bargains the other day and found a set of 8 small cards with assorted girly designs in pink/black/white/silver. Was bored last night and started to look at what I could do with them. I chose the lady with the powder compact and cut out the oval design to use as a cameo and thought it would look nice on a Bookatrix.
I wanted to add some flowers to it but didn't want to swamp the book so I decided to experiment with a stand that would allow me to add the flowers but not take anything away from the "book". In the end I found that an "easel" made from a sheet of A4 white pearlised card was just what I needed. I added 3 flowers made from white pearlised paper using the design on the reverse of the Bookatrix board, for the pink ones I coloured them using my Dusky Pink Promarker and finished them off with buttons as their centre. I also coloured the peel offs and the bling on the bookmark with the same Dusky Pink Promarker.
All I need now is a Birthday Girl to send it to!
