Enchanted Memories

Let’s take you down memory lane, and into a world of fantasy with enchanting memories. Life itself is the most wonderful Fairytale.

Today we’re super excited to share our latest creation. We’ve created a Pop-Up Book and used a lot of mixed media techniques for our front cover, and paper crafting for our pop- up pages.

We were inspired by the #ccbchallenge Canvas Corp Brands October Challenge- “Books Worth Reading”, the Mixed Media and Art Joint Project Stage 3- “The Breath of Nature” and the Mixed Media Place October Mood Board.

From the CCB Challenge- we’re taking you into the world of Enid Blyton books. All of us as children grew up reading these books, and today with our project we’ve re-created this mystical, enchanted world.

From the MMA Stage 3 challenge, we used natural material- twigs and moss on our front cover and the letters were incorporated in the form of phrases on our focal pictures.

From the MMP mood board, we were inspired by the images of the books, as well as the child’s room. We interpreted this by creating our own little book of adventure inspired by the famous children’s author Enid Blyton.

We’re also linking this project to the Stamplorations October Mixed Media Challenge 

Recently, on a trip to Porto, Portugal, a visit to the famous Livrario Lello Bookshop is a major inspiration behind this project. The bookshop is mystical and magical and happens to have inspired J K Rowling for her Harry Potter series. So the main front cover of our book shows how a visit to this bookshop can take you into this mystical world.

Further, we have three pop up pages showcasing different scenes. One in the form of a book page opening to the mystical land.
