Hey everybody, sure do hope your Christmas was a great one! It sure was a busy one around here. And great!
I promised I would share these, had to wait until after they were opened.
These were fun to make. I used Photoshop for the quotes. Printed them out, and then added stamping, and metallic paint. The photo here of the inside pages is early in the process, I forgot to take a later one. I used textured papers for the book covers, and I really like how they look. I also covered the inside to hide where the ribbon was attached. Mom’s tree is always on the elegant side, and these books have a very rich feel to them.
They were a hit, I am glad to say. For my brother I used a couple of lines from the Three Dog Night song, Joy to the world. One of his favorite songs when he was young. Got a chuckle which is what I was hoping for.
I received a WoNdEfuL surprise on Christmas eve. A signed and matted original from Kathy Mackay. My photos were not doing it justice, take a look at it on her site. Kathy had a Christmas give away on her Facebook page. I was one of four lucky recipients. I am so honored Kathy! It is beautiful!
I hope you will visit Kathy’s site and view her award-winning work! Thanks again Kathy, I will treasure it!
Wishing you JoY and cOmFoRt!
