Bookworm - Use A Book As Inspiration at Meljen's Designs.

Good morning everyone and Happy Thursday!!  Today is a new challenge over at Meljen's Designs. We are on Challenge #219 and the challenge is Bookwork (use a book as inspiration). My inspiration came from "The Hobbit".  Here is my creation for this challenge:

I used papers that came from Club Scrap. I really love their papers.. the quality is just not matched! And they are very unique! The die cut swirls are from Memory Box. I added gems on the swirl and pearls on the strip on the side. I added the little bouquet of flowers and leaves on the top corner. I though the white ribbon would be a nice added touch as well. I decoupaged this image and I had a blast doing it. The sentiment is a quote from "The Hobbit". I colored this image with my Copic markers as well. This image by the way LOL Is Traveling Gnome from Meljen's Designs. The swirls on the inside are from the cutout parts of the edge on the front.

  • Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
  • Leaf: G09, G19, G29
  • Wood, Acorn Bottom and Shirt: E33, E35, E37
  • Hair, Acorn Top and Shorts: E21, E23, E25, E27, E29
  • Cheek: R20, R22
  • Cape: YG93, YG95, YG99
