Nursery Rhymes

Tuesday Taggers set the challenge - Nursery Rhymes..... well I didn't need a nursery rhyme card. The stamps I have don't lend themselves to what I would have ReallY loved to do. I do however need to start making some little gifts for some of the family. One 2 year old little girl is going to be getting this in her stocking........

It's, as you can see a little book. It was made using some of the pages of a keepsake book from a beautiful blog candy win earlier in the year. It depicts Mother Goose on the front - that teller of so many rhymes. Inside cover has the rhyme......
and Humpty Dumpty. The other pages have different rhymes.... and finishes to the pages.

Glittery paint, acrylic paint, papers, alcahol ink daubed PVA. There are still another couple of rhymes I want to put in - but you get the idea. Each page is sealed so should last that little bit longer in the hands of a 2yr old. The images are all freebies off the net for childrens' activities. The holes in the book have been given an eyelet and the ring binder has had several ribbons tied on.
Hope you like my voyage into making a little book and thanks for looking.

I am also entering this into the 2 Sisters Challenge for anything goes, and the brand new Crafty Purple Frog Challenge blog, where again - anything goes.
