    Filed under Collage Sheets, Laura Carson, Summer/Beach

    What a treat today! A new paper pad, a related new collage sheet, and artwork using both by Laura Carson! AND I’ve put the supplies for Laura’s project in a new collection (with a few extras) and created a discount code for 20% off all those suppiles! More info on the sale is below (and remember that all of the supplies mentioned ‘tween here and there are included in the sale)!

    So this new paper: the Sea Dream 8×8 Paper Pad has a lovely mix of florals and sea creatures in a watercolor style. 1 sheet each of 10 double-sided designs (each sheet is a different design). Plus the back sides of the front & back covers are 2 more designs!
     

     
    Sea Dreams Handmade Book within a Book by Laura Carson

    What a creative project! Laura made an 8×8 book (actually a bit wider including the binding on left side) with a niche cut into the pages on the right side for a 4×4 accordion book (and lucky for us all, she includes a video tutorial on her blog post). A brief intro: see the page from the new pad above (with the large oval frame)? That is the cover of the 8×8 book (see left side of the first two wide photos below) with the middle of the oval cut out to reveal the smaller book inside.

    Here’s some text from Laura’s blog post to begin:

    For this project, I demonstrate how to make two books, a large book that contains a mini removable book.

    The inspiration for this project comes from the Sea Dream 8×8 Paper Pad and the poem “The Ocean” by Nathanial Hawthorn. You’ll find a printable version of the poem in my post. I love the paper’s design blending sea life with flowers.

    I have created a new collage sheet, “Sea Dreams” for this project and used the sheet to decorate the mini-book.

    To decorate the large book, I used various fern and seaweed die-cut chipboard shapes which I colored and made dimensional with the use of paint, microbeads, and embossing powders.

    What a beautiful project! I can also see the “book in a book” idea used as a gift with lots of different themes. More info is in Laura’s blog post and/or see her supply list (and remember all those items are on sale — see the bottom of this post for more info).
