Morning everyone!

Are you beginning to panic?
To help you stay calm we
have a lovely collage for you
today from

Karen Gist:

Gently remove the book covers from the ring bound spine.
Cover them with pieces of printed paper using matt medium

I have an old dictionary and a ready reckoner
that I use for this

Collage small pieces of patterned paper onto
some copier paper

I used scraps that I have but you could use any
type of paper, magazines, etc

Paint over the covers with DecoArt Cobalt Teal Hue
As it is a transparent paint, the print shoes through

Stamp the smallest stamp from the set using Stazon
and when dry flick some white acrylic over the top

While this is drying stamp and emboss the large flower
head and the stem onto the patterned paper collage 
Cut out and glue to the cover

Replace the covers onto the ring bound spine and
decorate with ribbon and beads as shown.

I attached the beads by threading them onto cotton 
adding a line of Liquid Glass and then laying the
beads over the top before carefully pulling out the cotton.  

It is such a quick and easy way of going it.

Materials used:

Thank you Karen

I think this would make a lovely gift
and not just for Christmas.........

See you tomorrow
