Summer Board Book

Hi everyone, hope you had a good weekend! I have a board book to share today with a summer theme of things Tilda and Edwin do in the holidays :). 
The cover: Tilda is exploring and checking on the bug life.

Picking some strawberries.

Riding her horse in the countryside.

Picking some flowers.

A day at the beach.

The board book is a Woodware 6 x 6 scalloped mini album which I've taken apart so that I have another three pages to make another some time. I was going for a more illustrative painted style for the backgrounds on these images as you would see in a children's book with a flatter look to them.

All the pages are painted with DecoArt paints over some texture paste. The texture paste is highlighted afterwards with black paint and there's black and white pen doodling around the edges. The flowers are Magnolia DooHickey Daisy dies which have been cut from watercolour card and painted with watercolours as are all the images. I added faux stitching, cut up words in the thought bubble DooHickey die cuts and doodling with a fine nibbed black pen. The book rings which were originally silver were coloured with black alcohol ink.

Thanks as always for your lovely comments and enjoy your day. :)

Tilda with a gift for you

Hi everyone! A little gift tag that I've made to share today and with the gorgeous new 'Tilda with a gift for you'. I've stamped onto kraft card, coloured everything with pencils, added a bit of doodling/faux stitching, a chit chat sticker and bakers twine and like the one layer effect for a change. 

I'm entering my tag into the Ribbon Girl colour challenge which this month has a beautiful inspiration photo as the colour source.

Thank you as always for your lovely comments which I appreciate very much.
