Springtime Book Art Set

I know, I know. Spring isn't due to arrive for weeks yet.

Be that as it may, I simply couldn't wait for spring's arrival before sharing this spring themed set. Friday afternoon seemed about right, and just in time for weekend Book Art fun.

Please see the red letter Guidelines below. Thank you so much.

Pockets! I have become a pocket fanatic! (This actually inspired the entire Spring Garden Collection) LOL But who doesn't enjoy using tucking places in journals, altered books, card-making, scrapbooking, and so on? I'm really getting enthused about it all from a design standpoint.

Previous posts including fun colorful playthings for book artists may be found in my Book Arts Category HERE.

For this one, I've chosen to use a slightly textural effect on the illustration I've chosen. The background and all of the fancy bits and bobs (buttons, etc.) in the set are intended to color coordinate or work together well.

The lace covered ribbon in the set has been given a little extra green at the ends for tucking under before gluing. Two sizes of buckle are intended to fit the 2 ribbons in the set, or any other ribbons or paper strips you might happen to choose.

The flaps on the pockets are really self explanatory, aren't they? Simply fold them under and apply glue or double sided high tack tape to each one prior to adding to your choice of page.

So here is to enjoying thoughts of spring even as winter lingers on.
Happy creativity!

thank you so much for the free printable, since when have you been giving them away? I am subscribing to your blog to get them all lol by the way, did you find your cupcake liners? if not I'll send you some, seriously :)

Hi Clemencia! :)
Golly! I guess that this blog's had free stuff since it began way back in 2011, perhaps before.
as you're new to the blog, I thought I'd mention that the red letter Guidelines and credits are extremely important. Without those, there can be no free graphics here at PPS.
And as for the cupcake liners, they are in a drawer in the kitchen with some spices, a sifter and some tea. I am still thinking about how to play with them!
Sweet of you to offer to send me some of yours. Very sweet. But as you can see, mine are ready for action already!
Happy Sunday!
