Good morning, I am playing in the DT Throwdown for Smeared and Smudged! (Follow the link to the rest of the DT’s groups that are playing.) The theme this go around is “Mini Books.” I have made my mini book using Smeared Ink’s new release stamps “Zodiac digi set.” (Follow the link to get yours.)
Here is my mini book it is a 4×4 Fat Book:
This is the front cover, it is a picture of the entire drawing of the Zodiac set. I printed it then used TH distress ink on top. Printed out the senti “What’z your Sign?” The stickers are from Stampin’ Up.
The order of the astrological signs is: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. On the left side I talk about what Zodiac means. On the right side I of course started off with Aries. I colored with Copics then used TH distress ink on top. The metal looking Yin and Yang symbol, I created by making four layers of Silver embossed piece of paper, then stamped my rubber Yin and Yang symbol stamp in it while still hot. The punched it out with a circle punch and added a pop dot.
On the left side I talk about what is an Aries, this is on the back of the picture side of the Aries page. On the right side is Taurus. I colored this digi with Copics then used TH distress ink on top.
On the left which is the back side of Taurus I talk about what it means to be that sign. On the right side is Gemini, also colored with Copics and distressed w/ TH’s distress ink. I also used TH’s distress ink on the picture in the back-ground. I used a piece of red w/ white polka dots craft tape on the left side.
On the left side (Back side of Gemini) I describe the traits of what a Gemini person might have. On the right side is Cancer. I used some more craft tape. Colored with Copics and distressed the Zodiac digi and the picture behind it with TH distress ink. I added a jeweled butterfly from stash.
On the left side on the back side of the Cancer page is where I typed the traits of one born under this sign. On the right side is Leo. (My grand-daughter is a Leo and I find it interesting that her name starts with the letter L. It’s “Leia” pronounced just like in the Star Wars movies “Princess Leia” and spelled the same way too. My little Leo Leia. Okay got side tracked for a moment. Any ways, this digi was colored with Copics and distressed w/ TH ink.
On the left (Back side of Leo) I talk about the traits. On the right side is Virgo. I colored this digi like the rest of them. The hand I downloaded from the web. I colored it using TH’s new distress paints.
This is the back of Virgo, where I explain the traits. Then I of course used TH’s distress ink! This concludes this mini book. I have done the first 6 signs of the Zodiac. I had fun making this mini book and will probably make the last 6 signs as Vol. 2!
I hope you have enjoyed my mini book. Thank you for your visit and Thank you for your comments.
