altered board book - cover

I'm taking part in altered board book swap hosted by Cathy and I started making my book today.
I completed the cover. I will do inner pages next month.

My partner's favorite color is green and she likes foreign print, she does not want her book to be girly or frilly.

I like green too, and I can get "foreign" print easily (as I am in Japan).
But this swap is a bit challenging for me - I have a daughter and I scrapbook for her so it's my first time to make something not girly.

And, this is my "not-so-girly" cover.

  1. ooooooooooooo very cool. love the tearing.....

  2. I think this is a great interpretation of "not girly or frilly." It still has a lot of texture and interest. Your partner will be thrilled with this book.
