First I made her a card... of course it had to be about Peacocks because that's what she loves! I found a great image on the web to use for the card, played with it in my design program, added a feather and voila!
I made her a folder / book and she can use it to store her work. I used Prima Moulin Rouge paper and made a background paper on my computer for the inside. Man did I make mistakes making this, it was a real eye-opener.
I had so much fun creating this, using for the first time sticky back canvas - which is perfect for binding. I sprayed the canvas with Adirondack Color Wash (Lettice) and stencilled a pattern with the Crafters Workshop Mini Brocade using my favourite colour lumiere paint - Halo Blue Gold. I finished it using a matching trim to cover the edge of the canvas. Christine can decorate the outside herself.
I was worried because I did not like the result at all but Christine assured me that she loves it and that is the main thing :)
