Little Books

I love little books! These books are great for artist trading cards or for wallet size photos. I hosted an atc swap and I made each of the participants a book that they could decorate however they wanted for the halloween atcs we swapped. While I was making the books, I made a book of wedding photos of my daughter and also a little book for my daughter in law.

On the front of the halloween book, I used bleach to whiten the orange paper and then I painted the pumkins and buttons with powdered pigments. In real life, they have a great sheen! You can see the sheen on the heart on the lavender book.

Makes a great little brag book or a collection of trading cards.
