Mini book: “Colors of my Life” By Karine

Hi everyone!

This month challenge inspired me in making a very colourful mini book!

I printed my favourite summer pictures in black & white (size 9×13 cms) so that I’m allowed any fantasy I fancy!

I used as a medium a great cloth mini book from Canvas Corp. it has just the perfect size and a fantastic texture!

I started by applying gesso with an old loyalty card on each page.

While my gesso dries in, I selected the colours I will use. I chose a Glimmer Mist colour for each double page! Here is my selection of ink sprays:

 

The cover will be blue thanks to Glimmer Mist “Patina Blue”

The first double page will be orange thanks to Glimmer Mist “Candy Corn”

The second double page will be anise green thanks to Glimmer Mist “Key Lime Pie”

The third double page will be pink thanks to Glimmer Mist “Oriental Poppy”

The fourth double page is blue.

The fifth double page is coloured in fushia thanks to Glimmer Mist “Rosey”

The sixth double page will also be pink thanks to Glimmer Mist “Party Pink”

Last one, the seventh double page will be yellow thanks to Glimmer Mist “Sunflower”

Now my pages are dry, I sprayed my colours without blending them. I also sprayed a bit of water to help the colour spread if need be.

My selection of colours is so flashy and bright! My mini book will look like a rainbow!

The right side of each double page will be devoted to my picture. On the left side, I played with washi tape and 7Gypsies stickers.

A simple display, some 3D wooden accents and here we are!

Every colours used in this mini will also be represented on the cover of this mini book which title is suggestive: “Colors of my Life”

Here are pictures for you…

Let’s hope you’ll now have very colourful new ideas!

Have a wonderful day!
