Book Cover Week - Wonky Street Chipboard Book

Hi Tando fans! Dana here today sharing a colorful chipboard book for the Book Cover theme this week. This book was super fun to put together! It feels great to finally finish this book! (I had the cover complete back in May!) I'm ready to move onto this dreamy street! Who wants to come with?!

I paired Susan K. Weckesser whimsical patterned paper and stamps with the Wonky Street Book Cover Kit designed by Neil Walker. I painted the cover with Ranger acrylic paint and added some textured designs with the Susan K. Weckesser A Little Bit Washi Stamp Set. I secured the houses to the book cover with adhesive foam for added dimension. I added numbers to each house with digits from the Arthur Number Set. The Mini People were the perfect size for this piece. I colored them with purple mist. The sentiment from Susan's What's Up Gnomey? Stamp Set was the perfect finishing touch.

I used twine and a Secret Belgian Binding technique to secure the front and back covers to the spine. I learned this technique from a 3-part video series that I found HERE.

I stitched three sections of colored cardstock and patterned paper into the binding of the book creating a total of 30 pages, which should be plenty for me to document all the moves I make as a military wife!

You can find this chipboard and more in the Tando Creative Retail Store! We'd love to have you join the Book Cover Challenge!
