Here's the Skinny

A "Skinny Book", that is. In the paper craft/art world a "skinny" is a 3" x 5" piece of art work done on heavy cardstock - or just plain ol' scrap cardboard. A "skinny book" would be a few of these skinny pages compiled into a book and bound in any way which strikes the creator's fancy. This is skinny book that I created for a swap on Swap Bot. The theme was "purple". My swap partner left me a '5' rating with a heart. That's the best you can get. =) Creating the purple skinny book was challenging, but enjoyable. Hope you enjoy looking.

skinny - confidential information about a topic or person; "he wanted the inside skinny on the new partner" - or a 3" x 5" piece of artwork created on heavy cardstock or scrap cardboard.

  2. Gaye,
    Your skinny boof is fabulous, beautiful and quite a work of art. No surprise that you got the highest rating and with a heart. The colors are pretty. I love the quote. And I think all your elements work perfectly. I especially love the beads. The fiber too . . oh and that silver wire mesh stuff. Great element. You sure made a beauty of a skinny book! Love it : )
    And it's AWESOME to see you back on line blogging.
