Foam board and Stencils????
I recently took a class from Wendy Vecchi and fell IN LOVE with her embossing paste. Well, of course, I did! It was the old Dreamweavers embossing paste I loved in the past!
Oh the gold and silver.....not to mention the other colors!
This is where my project would start out. I cut my Foam Board to 9" x 12" inches....why?? because that is the size of my stencil.
Well now when you see this next picture I could have stopped right there and been TOTALLY happy! The matt of the black Foam Board with the shiny of the embossing paste--WOW! The Foam Board is so easy to work on.
But I decided to move on and make something a little more creative. How about a book? YES! that's it, a book. I love to book bind and make my own signatures.
I cut another piece of Foam Board to 9" x 12" and another to 1.5" x 12". Here is my book base. Now what to bind it with.
For some reason we have an abundance of athletic tape in my house. What color you may ask--at last count about 14 different colors. KIDS! Which one did I pick? Black of course!
A little stenciling on the tape with my Stitch a Greek Border stencil from StencilGirl and I was set! Here is a close-up of the spine of my book. I stenciled a line of my border right down the middle of the two pieces of tape.
Now when I'm ready for my next book binding project I have the perfect shell! Think of the possibilities With the Holiday's coming these would make the perfect present--big, small, cheap and beautiful!
