red, white and blue USA


I am entering FIVE challenges today with my little red, white and blue USA book.

The challenges are:
Here is my book: The background papers are Sandylion ~ Upper Deck. I embossed some chipboard letters, spelling out 'USA' in red, white and blue and layered them up onto squares that I made and painted with crackle paint. Three little pearls add another bit of texture.
The image is of course a Gorjuss Girl. I coloured her with my copics and added some stickles. I layered her up in the same way that I had done the letters and added some red and blue brads to the corners.
I bound the book and added some star shaped and stripey ribbons in keeping with the US theme.


Thank you for looking.
