The new fortnightly challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges has the them “Remembrance,” chosen by the uber talented Helen, which is appropriate given that today is Armistice Day in the UK and Veterans Day in the USA. Here in the UK there have been many events over the weekend to mark the occasion and today there will be a two minute silence at 11am.
If you visited my blog around this time last year you will know that I did several projects and featured a poem, written by my late mother, called “Poppies.” For my Design Team Project I have made a miniature book that features the poem:
I made a concertina book from heavyweight scrapbook type paper and then a little cover from cardstock. The cover of the book is decorated with little punched poppies.
I’ve added a ribbon on the inside so the book can be fastened with a bow.
On the inside I’ve used old book pages and coloured them with Broken China and Shabby Shutters distress stains then added some blobs of red paint. Each double page spread has one verse of the poem and I’ve added little poppies and bees (bees are featured in one of the verses).
If you’d like to read the poem in full you can find it here.
Be sure to buzz over and see all the fabulous projects the Crafty Boots Challenges Design Team have come up with and I hope that today is one filled with happy memories of those you wish to remember.
Thanks for buzzing by.
