I'm currently doing Shimelle's online class "When I grow Up". In the first part of the class she asks us to create a storybook, about one (or more) of our dreams as a child. My story is about how, oddly enough, I dreamt of being a ballerina. I started the book today, so far only the cover is complete.

I'm using a child's board book. I've already covered all the pages with cardstock and patterned paper. For the cover I
  • Used a ballerina die-cut as a mask with pigment ink, then traced the outline
  • Used ribbon and tulle to make the tutu
  • Ran letter stickers face down through my Xyron 150 and covered them with glitter for the word Ballerina
Other stuff used: Hambly journaling bit, 7 Gypsies Gaffer tape, SEI PP, unknown sticker. I'll be working on the rest of it tomorrow, so check back soon to see the whole story!
