Let me just say this LO was so much fun to make! woo! My dd is obsessed with princesses and girly things, so I've been wanting to do this LO for some time, I finally came up with the design I needed.
I made the swirls on the paper with AL swirl stamps. On the blue paper, half of the stamps are embossed with Antique Gold embossing powder, so they're really shimmery like fairy dust. I made the book myself, I started out with just white cardstock. The cover was inked with liquid chalk and brushed with regular chalk for a leathery book look. I used an embossing pen to draw the swirls in the corners and embossed over them. The title of the book and the story is computer generated using St. Nicholas font.
Don't forget to look at the pages of the book, they're in separate LO posts!
I altered the photos used in the book so they appear to be paintings.
