I spent the day in the air-conditioned comfort of my craft room (living room) cause it was just too hot to venture outdoors. Inspired by a great book I found in the kids section of the St. Catharines Library called Making Books that Fly, Fold, Wrap, Hide, Pop Up, Twist and Turn (what a title!) I made a number of summery art books and a few ATCs.
The first two books I made were Summer Entertaining Drink Idea books made from scraps of an LCBO pamphlet among other paper ephemera I had around. Even in my arts and crafts I try to promote supporting your local scene - note the niagara wine suggestions and Canadian (Thunder Bay) tea in the non-alcoholic row!
The third book I made was a mini photography portfolio book that I made as a mockup for a "real size" portfolio I plan to assemble for myself. The final one will of course have much better finishings :p
Last but not least I made a few ATCs with the smaller scraps I had floating around after making the books. They are up for trade in my ATCsforAll.com Gallery
