itty bitty hand bound beach book--She Sells Sea Shells . . .

It's July, and time for a new round of Reader's Art Quests at Unruly Paper Arts.
The theme this month is Catch the Wave, and the first RAQ--Beach!
This tiny book is only about 2 1/2 inches square--you can see the dime in
background, to give you an idea of its' size:

ephemera and graphic45

collage image--Altered Pages, vintage alphabet, seashell--Rogue Redhead Designs

collage image--Altered Pages, corner stamps--Rogue Redhead Designs
crab stamp--Rogue Redhead Designs
All the photo collage images are from Altered Pages, the alphabet set is vintage,
and the stamped images are all from Rogue Redhead Designs.

I hope this take on the classic seaside tongue twister inspires you to come
Catch the Wave at Unruly Paper Arts this month--there are several weeks
to join in the new Reader's Art Quests, and all types of paper arts are welcome,
so see you at the beach . . .
