I recently joined a monthly Stamp Club at Crafty Clares, my local craft store which I'm extremely lucky to live quite close to.
It's such a great group of talented ladies and we have a good laugh as well as creating lovely things.
At the last get-together we made Star Books - my very first attempt at one of these. Most of the evening was taken up measuring and cutting the pages to size. This suited me very well since that's not my strong point and I always find it easier to have someone there telling me what to do rather than try and follow written instructions - just the way my brain works....or doesn't! lol
So I decorated the pages at home, over the last week and so enjoyed making this that I can't wait to try another Star Book. I played it safe for the first one using vintage colours and distressing.
Above is the front cover and the first two pages. I tried to make it tell the story of a woman's life in an abstract way, starting with a young child in a garden and ending with a mature woman in a garden.
