Sea Tales

Hi there,
Or should I shout ahoy!

Ladies from Marianne’s Design Divas have a challenge where anything goes and call for DT ; and Ladies from UHK Galleries challenge us with “Sea Tales”.

Today I wanted to share with you and respond to those two calls with a little something called “meander book”. It is a small book made with one page of 12×12’’ paper that you cut and fold in specific way and create pages and pockets, hence its name.
The one I have for you today is my mini memories from Brittany. I was inspired by lovely boat die from Marianne Design (one of my favourite dies!) to make it. I wanted it to be more exciting and unusual so I decided to create Breton seascape and incorporate it in my book. I really like how it turned out. The book is almost finished, all I have to do is put some photos and do some journaling to keep those memories alive forever…
For those of you not familiar with the place, Brittany is a cultural region in the north – west of France, after Ireland, one of the biggest Celtic heritage regions with interesting and abounded archaeological sites and artefacts, and very lively Celtic music, language and traditions.





To make the book I used:

American Craft card stock “Pastels” 12×12’’;
Designer Paper: My Mind’s Eye “Lime Twist”, 7gypsies “Mykonos” 6”x 6”;

Marianne Design die “ Boats”;
Die-namics “Flat Bottom Cloud”;
Tim Holtz “Tiny Tabs & Tags” ;
Lea’bilities “Seashell&waves”.

I also used scraps of craft paper to make rocks and tags for journaling and to create the 3D middle of the book with a boat;
Stamping Up “Heart Treat Cup”, some shells and seaweeds I picked at the beach;
Distress ink, glue, 3D foam and glue dots, Distress stickles “Picket Fence” to add shimmer to the waves;

Stamps: Toga “Bretagne”.

If you’d like a tutorial on how to make such book please live a comment.

Happy scrapbooking and see you soon.

P.S. I forgot to add that the size of the book is 4”x4”… tiny and cute.
