I decorated the pages (both sides) before cutting the circle window with my X-Cut cutters. Then realised I hadn't added acetate! So I made circle frames to conceal it! I wrote a couple of poem quotes on the main sunflower page. "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness" and "windfall-sweetened soil". The printed words are from the back of the sunflower paper. The "Rusty Pickle" just tickled me - LOL. Found it was really hard to photograph the window, so have added a further picture so you can see through it.
Despite wishing to avoid paints, I ended up painting the green on the leafy paper as it was Kraft colour before and just didn't look right and the sunflower letters didn't stand out enough before either. So considering I didn't have any plan at all, I do believe I have managed to do my window pages at last (please don't mention the doors!)
Very cool BJ, you are doing such an excellent job! Just love it! waving hi from the sandy beaches of Florida ;0
Awe honey, what gorgeous pages. I looooove the sunflowers, lol they always make my heart sing, thank-you.
Your page is so so neat too, beautifully constructed my lovely, well done you.
Big hugs x x x x
WOW! thos sunflowers are gorgeous! Your pages look really happy and the circle window is just perfect. Fabulous work my lovely xxx
I love sunflowers so this would always work for me!! I thought you'd painted them to begin with until I read further down. . . Love your window pages BJ!
Hi BJ, the sunflowers are amazing on your pages and I love your window too - great job. A x
I always try to take your special needs into consideration when I design a lesson in my AB, and this really fun 4 page spread gave me an idea for your decorative edge. Since you will need a front and back for your decorative edge, why not use the WINDOW as your homework assignment for the decorative edge homework. Just a thought, since I know your pages are limited.
I'd say you did a super job considering you were going on memory. Much nicer than the window I created. I love the sunflowers and appreciate how you treated each page just a bit differently. Nicely done, dear. I'm totally impressed. And PAINT, too!!
For some reason, your middle page looked strong enough that it would hold up under the buttons and wire. Sorry if I misled you. You don't need the extra strength if you are good with wire and buttons. I didn't add the extra cardboard to the first one I made. Unfortunately, I am NOT good with wire and I broke the first hole when I tightened the wire too much.
Sunflowers, always a winner with me. I love the way your pages flow together, the window really pulls you through.
I really like sunflowers and your page came out beautiful and so well done. I also forgot to add the acetate window, but was able to pull mine apart and reglue :)
I forgot that windows work two ways but yours worked out well. Nice job!
