The Coaster Book

A little book covered with scrapbook paper and attached by a cardstock spine was Carin’s project up at Limberlost. Normally I go for the minimalist approach, but I deliberately chose to something fussier—just to see what it would turn out like.
Inside Carin’s sample were two accordion foldouts tied with ribbon, which looked great. But somehow I got off track here and ended up making a little book using odds and ends from my baggie of collage elements. I kind of like it the way it is, but one of these days, I may add some quotes or use it as a mini journal.

It's a beautiful mini album! Sometimes it's fun to leave the "trusted zone" and try something different. Great use of collage elements! I still recognize your style here :)

I was curious as to how you would combine your digital work. It's totally wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
