This month the PTI hop challenged us to be inspired by a book cover. Nothing popped into my head immediately, so I started browsing book covers! I almost chose the Secret Garden, but instead went with The Catcher In The Rye. It's been a long time since I read it, but I let the CAS design, clean font & gold inspire me.
I used a glue pen to apply the gold embossing powder for the border. The sentiment from Tree Trimming Trio is also embossed with gold powder.
Here's the cover:
I can hardly believe I've created something without ribbon! After you hop, make sure to stop by the May Arts blog to enter the Thanksgiving weekend giveaway! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by & happy hopping! :)
These two companies give me much to be thankful for! I've shared my love for Helmar adhesives here many times, so I was so excited to have the opportunity to share a project using their quick dry adhesive!
I simply punched circles with a 1 3/4" punch, and used the quick drying adhesive to lock them in place on a papier mache cone. I painted a wooden candlestick from the craft store black for the base of my tree, and put the cone right on top!
Thank you so much to Helmar for such awesome adhesives- and thank you for your time! Here's the hop schedule- I've included both days so you don't miss a bit! Enjoy all the inspiration, and be sure to leave comments on all the posts for a chance to win some great products!
Your next stop on the hop is thee fabulous Jingle!
Hi there! I've got a banner to share that I made because I was inspired to! Yes, I've got lots of things I should be doing, but sometimes letting the creativity guide us is just what we need to feed our soul, right?
