Mini Flower Book
This little flower book was fun. I only had to make 25 of them! First I took a length of muslin and painted it with purple acrylic. I cut it into covers and stitched it with watercolor paper inbetween for strength. The pages were cut slightly smaller and have paper stitched inside, then they're stitched to the cover. The inside flowers are drawn with marker and painted with acrylics and Prismacolor pencils. I added some handcut stamps in the shape of a bee. The cover was stamped with acrylics in various colors. Finally, I created a needle felted flower from orange and purple wool roving and angelina fibers and attached it. The closure is velcro. There is a ring to make it a charm.
