Julie's Round Robin Book

I apologize for these horrible photos, but no matter what I do, I can't get a decent photo or scan because of the dimension on this page. This is another of the round robin books from my local art group and belongs to Julie who asked for "Favorite Childhood Memories." It's a chipboard house book which she covered in newspapers.

Since one of my favorite memories is of sledding with my younger brothers during the winter on a hill behind our house (and also because I had this darling sledding stamp from Red Lead Paperworks), that's the theme of my page!

I used Golden Light Molding Paste for the lower half of the page and for the roof and chimney edges of the house. While this was wet I drew two lines with a pointed skewer for the sledding trail. I stamped the sledding stamp on a domino with Staz On, colored it in with Sharpies and sealed with a clear Krylon spray sealer. The winter quote was stamped on white cardstock which I had first embossed with the polka-dot Cuttlebug folder and the edges were heat-embossed with silver. The top part of the page has a snowflake patterned paper which I stamped and embossed with more snowflakes.

Since Julie requested we journal about our memories, I made a fold-out accordion book sandwiched between two mittens. I also added a childhood photo of myself on the inside of the top mitten. This is held on the page with a snowflake brad and a white piece of yarn is tied around the top of the mitten book to keep it closed.
