January 2023 Mini Booklet Challenge with Karen Telfer

Yesterday, I shared a sneak peek of the monthly little booklet challenge 2023 with Karen Telfer.  I have now finished my booklet with a theme of "Circles".  

I've made a video of the booklet. but I have also taken still photographs too.

This is the cover for the booklet.   I used two Funky Fossil stencils (Broken Mosaic and Micro Dots) with three shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Cracked Pistachio, Peacock Feathers and Blueprint Sketch.  These happen to be one of my favourite colour combinations.

I've used patterned papers for the inside page, using sticky letters to spell out "Welcome" making a little pouch for the tag to sit in.

Page 1 is a piece of copy paper.  I found two white die cuts in my stash, one was like a scroll the other was the dove of peace, so I went for a white on white theme.

Page 2, another stash find, was a Brusho background with stamped circles from a Carabelle Studio stamp set in Versafine Clair "Warm Breeze" ink.  I stuck a circular Tim Holtz Idea-ology disc to the middle and used one of his word stickers too.

Pages 3 & 4 use a piece of velum with a text script on it.  I've used some die cut arrows and word stickers.

Page 5 i've used a gel plate background from my stash.  I used a moon mask in the middle with Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink to create the window.  In the middle I stuck a Lavinia Stamps sticker, a word sticker and a few sequins.

Page 6 is more use of patterned paper and a vertical pocket to hold heart shaped embossed tags.

Pages 7,8,9 & 10 are all vellum, with a circle design.  I've used dotty washi tape and stuck die cut houses, foliage and word stickers on to each page.

Page 11 is more patterned papers with a vertical pocket to hold embossed tags.

Page 12 is again a gel plate background, using a moon mask to highlight the central area and a Lavinia Stamps sticker.

Pages 13 & 14 again with Vellum, I punched a circle out of it as a nod to the theme of the booket and added word stickers to each side.
Page 15 is a piece of Yupo paper with a lovely alcohol ink image.  I've been keeping this to one side for a couple of years, so decided it would be ideal to add to this little booklet. I've added green and clear gems to the surface along with a word sticker.

Page 16 is white copy paper with a couple of die cuts and the word grateful, plus a sprinkle of sequins.

Page 17, the last page is again patterned papers, this time with a horizontal pocket for a tag.  I've added letter stickers and sequins to the circles of the patterned paper.
