Paper Bag Nature Swap last

Gosh time is flying for me this year with changes in the workplace, my stint in Jury Duty and extra training for work... my crafty pursuits are suffering.Hence my delays in getting this paper bag book together.I Finlay got to put the pages together last night.Basically the base pages are paper lay them one way then the other and join them in the middle so every second page is the opening of the bag which creates a pocket.You have a decorated page on each side and place two decorated pages back to back in the pockets.Here is the completed book.

My front cover.Its very shimmery as I used Daler Rowney pearlescent inks sponged on the bg before I stamped the leaves.The central stamped leaves are made from Opals Embossing Enamels .

The sign in page.The stamped floral piece at the bottom is Friendly Plastic, Angelina Film and Opals Embossing Enamels.

Page 1...the tab at the right is two pages attached to black card back to back to go in the pocket.I added the tab for easy removal as it was a tight fit.

Pages 2 & 3.

Page 4 & 5.

Page6 & 7.
Page 8 & 9.

Page 10 & 11.

Page 12 & 13.

Page 14 & 15.

Page 16.

Page 17 & 18 on pocket inserts.

Pages 19 & 20.

Pages 21 & 22.

Pages 23 & 24.

When the swap pages arrived back in March I thought they were all just lovely then. Last night as I sat putting the artworks on the paper bags and then sewed the pages in place I looked at each page in a new light and there is so much effort put in them all...they are more then lovely...they are gorgeous.
