For a little girl called Willow...

Fondly known as 'Willa' hence the title of the book. I was asked to make this photo album by Willow's Godparent. Willow is only 10yrs old,but was described as very wise for her age. Her Godparent wanted an album that she could use as she got older and also something that reflected childlike innocence with a little grown up feel.
I just love the way this book turned out,right from the beaded trims I used to the high contrast black cardstock which I stamped with some white archival ink.
I painted yellow roses on the cover as a reflection of Willow's nature that was described to me as bright and cheery.

For the spine title 'in bloom' I used Winsor and Newton artist ink in Noisette [nut brown] I then block printed the canvas spine and distressed it with some chalk paint.
