The More You Read & CANDY!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone I'm here with my DT Project for the Noor Design UK blog using the uber fabulous Shape Art Book by Dutch Doobadoo.

First though we have just reached over 40,000 visitors on the Noor Design UK blog, so why not pop on over there & check out the candy you can win. It will run for a week.

Ok I have to say I love, no I mean I LURVE this Book Art template, its fabulous & something that will be used a lot.........
I have used black card as my base as I thought it added a bit more pop especially against the gorgeous colours that are in this Botanical Paper pad I've used.

I've inked & distressed all the edges & on one side I curled the tops over, just to make it look oldish & well read ;-) This is I'm keeping for myself so I did a test, I used 2 different methods to add a bend to the page & a gap between each page. This side I used 3D glue & the other side I used large Foam Pads & I have to say the foam pads are so much easier but use larger ones, that's only my opinion of course.
The 3D glue was good but you have to hold it in place until it sets..........ok if you are a telly watcher whilst crafting but I'm impatient & not a tv watcher lol.

Ok so my quote is a Dr Seuss quote & this one came with a Sylvia Zet image a long long time ago but I love this quote & thought it perfect. I used the Cutting & Embossing Parchment die to layer the quote on which I also inked & curled the corners.

I've used my favourite Swirld die under the flowers & one of the many gorgeous leaf dies.......eventually I would love them all........its hard to choose a favourite. I added flowers from my stash & calmed the colours down a bit with gesso.
I added seam binding & a fine pearl string to the centre, also made a bow with the seam binding to tie it all in.
I just added an image to this side, its a digi image so was able to make her larger & then fussy cut her out.
The image I found a long time ago & its from Jess College Fund but cannnot find the link ot it, sorry.
I've coloured her with copics......colours used are......
