Craftascope Large Rose Petal Mini Book.

When I saw these Large Rose Petal dies from Craftascope, I thought they would make a cool Mini Book.

I used the largest die to make my covers from some board from a Please Do Not Bend envelope. Love to recycle!!

I am exploring earthy colours, so painted with layers of Amsterdam Acrylic Paints, Raw Sienna, Yellow Ochre, Naples Yellow and Naples Red.

The inside of my covers I cut using the 3rd largest size die some pieces of patterned paper. Black acrylic gave me a nice border.

The pages were cut using the 2nd largest die, I wanted them to be smaller that the covers. Punched a whole and secured with a metal ring so I can add pages. On going project and great fun.

The rose petal dies can be found here
