I was looking for new inspiration for my book this week but after a quick look online, came up with nothing. This link is about layered fabric, and is very inspiring, but it's not quite the same. I'll share a bit of my old layered book, so you can get the idea:
First, get yourself a hardbound book with blank pages inside. There are all kinds available with cute covers and decorative patterns, but the plainer the better for me.
This is what I did last year. Each piece of paper is attached on one edge, so that it can open like a book. You can use two pages on either side and have double doors. Then underneath the little flap, you can tear a shape or write a poem, or phrase.
It all starts with scraps of paper, which you can find anywhere, even a fancy envelope that comes in the mail can inspire. Or pretty wrapping paper. Another great source of inspiration is children's books, like Ezra Jack Keats, The Snowy Day, or Eric Carle, who paints his own papers first, then begins to tear. Imagine how much fun it would be to do with kids too. But for me, this is going to be mommy-time. All I need now is to find a little play time for mommy and some creative juice! Almost as good as retreat.
