what a fab day its been today, glorious sunshine and stunning blue skies. I hope the weather has been as kind to you all wherever you are?
The lovely Elizabeth over at Altered Book Lover asked us to come up with some windows and doors and also decorative page edges for our last 2 lessons. If you would like to see the wonderful tutorials for these lessons please hop on over here and here.
Due to some personal issues and time being limited I decided to combine the 2 lessons for 1 spread, lol other than the fact that I ended up with a big gap between starting my spread and finishing it!! In all honesty I am not feeling the love with this one and I think it was very much due to losing impetus half-way through, hey ho, you live and learn and I've definitely learnt something about myself so there is always a positive that can come out of a negative!!
Anyhoo, here you go............
I wanted a spread that initially hid the focal point, just showing a peep through the window, not sure it entirely works as I had in mind but I think it still conveys my original idea. I have always associated India with some of the most amazing colours you can find, i.e. the spices, paints and silks as shown above.
The decorative edge feels like a bit of a kop out to be honest but I think it looks ok, not brilliant by anymeans, but ok ha ha ha!! I'm soooooo glad I saved the ties for the candy canes from last christmas - I knew they would be useful for something!! Tee hee, got a bit heavy handed with one of the eyelets but managed to fix it with some of my trusty electrical tape.
Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to.
