* Vera Lane Studio: Stay at Home 2020


I hope today finds you safe and well.

For my Vera Lane Studio DT project this week, I made an accordion booklet to visually document some of the events that have happened during the pandemic this year.
The pandemic has been awful and I feel truly blessed that my family has not suffered. I intend to write on the back of each page so that I will have a record to look back upon.

The cover is made from grayboard and was die cut with the Eileen Hull Small Journal die. PaperArtsy Fresco paints and AALL & Create stencils and stamps were used to decorate the cover and the pages during an online workshop with Tracy Evans. 

The images are from various recently released digi sets from Vera Lane Studio. They are coloured with Copic markers and fussy cut.
Here are close ups of the pages:

That's all for now.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!


Thanks for stopping by today.
