Darkroom Door new release - Sydney paper products

It was wonderful to see an Australian city in the new release of Darkroom Door products! Missed the mark by about 1000 kilometres, but it's still wonderful. Maybe that's just the born and bred Melbournite talking LOL ;)

Sydney has so many iconic structures to feature, I decided to make a teeny tiny miniature book using images from the Montage Sheet.  Here's the Opera House on the cover:

 
The covers are made from thick chipboard, which I painted with some new 3D Stamp Paint. I love the rough sandy texture of this paint!  I cut out the image and placed it over some tea-stained gauze on the front cover, and added a word from the Wordstrips, mounted on thick chipboard.
 
Here's a look at the inside:
 

I used some of the tiny images on the Montage sheet, over scraps of old dictionary page.  I even used some of the 3D Stamp Paint as ink for my rubber stamp. It has dried slightly raised, adding some interesting texture.

This book really is tiny! Here it is in the hands of the smallest person in the house (7 year old Elouise):



Thanks for looking! I'll be back with more soon.
