Bird Art Journal - Meg's garden DT Project

Our new challenge at Meg's Garden was to create with an
Accordian Book Kit available from Meg's Garden,

Check out the website here

for more inspiring creations from the wonderful
International Design Team of Meg's garden.
Here is my creation



DETAILS OF BIRD ART JOURNAL


I decided to turn my accordion kit into a mini book,
A Mini Bird Art Journal.
First I covered the foam covers with Music sheet paper, then
glued the pages together, so it formed 6 pages to decorate
I wanted this book to look like a study of different birds,
A vintage journal style book, with a very rustic feel to it.
Before I glued the covers to the inside pages, I used Tim Holtz
Die cut “Hardware Finding” using the long hinged shape,
cut out of Grungeboard, I inked them and secured it in place
with brads. This created a hinge for my mini book. Then glued
the pages to the cover. All the lace I used from Meg’s Garden
was white, I stained them with distress inks to make them look
vintage colour. I did the same to the Paper doilies.

You can make more pages to this book by cutting up more
Card stock and then glue it together.

to create one for yourself.
