Mini week: little booklet

It's Linda's turn today with this adorable mini book. 
Don't forget to let us know what you think.. 

I LOVE all things mini! I have no clue why! I am sure someone somewhere will know! Anyways ... my fondness for small makes me a veritable magnet for Tim Holtz's sheets of mini range stamps. This week I have made a mini book ... and
it really is mini ... the covers and pages are exactly the same size as an Artist Trading Card ...

Thought you might like a quick tip ... butterfly bodies are so easily made by placing a thin line of Glossy Accents on your butterfly. Thread your beads onto a pin ... then lay them in the Glossy Accents and hold the end bead with your finger ... finally pull the pin out slowly and leave to dry!

Here is a quick look at a few of the pages ... I used a mask for the frame stamp and then added the text ... a bit of Vintage Photo and a quick spray of Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls.

Tim Holtz Stamps: Steam Punk Art; Mini Classics;
