Hello everyone, Mou here with a Here & Now book tutorial. For today's project, I have chosen a Woodland Park Here & Now Chapter book along with various other products (8x8 Paper pad, Washi Tape, Wrap Pack, Miscellany, 12x12 Shape Stickers, and Sprinklers) from the Woodland Park collection.
Let's start with the cover... here's the naked chipboard cover.
These are some stuff I used to cover the front.
This is what it looks like with all the pieces glued down.
Here's the cover after a coat of white gesso on top.
And then I misted the cover with Sprinklers using a circle stencil.
Added a little bit of watercolor here and there and a flashcard from the Miscellany pack
and a butterfly sticker from the 12x12 Shape Stickers sheet.
I reorganized the papers the and chapters to make the book suit my needs.
I painted around the printed butterfly on the first page with Twinkling H2O, cut up words and phrases from the strip in the Miscellany pack and glued them down toward the right edge of the diecut paper.
In the middle and left, I added some journaling with pen and markers.
I sketched some objects we found during our nature walks and colored them with watercolors and added some journaling. I punched holes along the left edge of a poem card from the Miscellany pack and used it as an additional page insert and journaled on the back of it.
I took a bunny diecut from the Miscellany pack and used it to embellish the facing page.
These Here & Now chapter books are real handy no matter what memories and observations you plan on documenting next. i hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and when you create with your Here & Now books, I hope you'll share in the OA Flickr Gallery.
