Sandy – Printery Flip Book

Hi Sandy here. This week I used my favourite CHA Summer release from Prima : the black and white Printery collection. The project I created is a Valentine's Day flip-book commissioned by a friend for his wife.

To build the base of the book, I divided the Love Ledger paper into three 4"x12" sections. Folded them in half and glued the backs together. Then used Pressman and Page Four papers to decorate the cover and the inside pages.

Controlling colour is one way I achieve coherence in my work. Here I was free from having to make colour choices. Every element could be considered based on their pattern, scale and size. The creative process went quicker than usual : with the whole book completed in one morning.

I enjoyed working on this sans-colour project. If you like the classic look in black and white, the shop also carry Kaisercraft's Timeless, After Five and Teresa Collin's Notations. All of them would work beautifully for Valentines.

Supplies : Prima Printery (Pressman, Page Four, Love Ledger), Prima Madeline Rub-on, Basic Grey Capella Rub-on, Pink Paislee Buttterfly Garden Clear Pops, Echo Park Be Mine Element Sticker, lace trim, flower charms, pearls
