Oh ya...it's Digit-al Dozen Week again! Admit it, this is your favorite time of the month! So many amazing designs! I know it's my favorite.
This month we are creating designs inspired by our childhood. I was really worried about this theme. What the heck was I going to do?? Then how the heck was I going to pull of the designs?? It took me awhile but I was able to narrow it down to things that give me the best memories from my childhood. So far I am extremely happy with my designs. As I write this I still have two designs to create and I keep wavering on the last one. It keeps changing every day. Hopefully I can make a final decision and stick to it!
Today's design is inspired by my love of books. As a child I would devour books. I would spend hours upon hours in the public library reading and taking home stacks of books. I wasn't picky. I read everything that caught my eye from Encyclopedia Brown to The Babysitter's Club. I loved escaping into the books and having adventures. Just thinking about some of the books I read gives me wonderful feelings of happiness. I don't read as much as I did as a kid but it is still one of my favorite ways to spend my time.
This design is the perfect representation of what I love about reading. Love, travel/adventure, magic, fairy tales, and The Babysitter's Club!
I am now rocking some serious nubbins! I had a really bad break on my index finger and lowered the others to match. My poor nubbins.
I started with two coats of White.
I added my pages using Black Swift and MoYou London Scholar 02.
I used a variety of colors and images to add my representations. It will be easier if I just list them.
Thumb - Cheeky Jumbo Plate 4 and Blackberry - The Babysitter's Club
Index - PUEEN 03 and Guava - Fairy Tales
Middle - MoYou London Princess 09 and Passion Fruit - Magic
Ring - Winstonia On the Road and Blue Plum - Travel/Adventure
Pinkie - Bundle Monster H18 and Pomegranate - Love
I had to add a little more "magic" to the design! This was easily accomplished with one coat of Northern Lights.
This design perfectly shows my love of reading. I truly believe that all the books I have read have helped me become the person I am today. Reading is one of the best things you can encourage your children to do!
Make sure you visit these ladies and check out their amazing designs!
