Hidden Treasures

Although I'm not doing any swaps for awhile, I am still honouring my RR commitments. Here is the beginning of my fabric book -- in a themed RR called "Hidden Treasures". Pages must have something hidden for the owner to find -- maybe in a pocket. My book is called "The Secret Garden" These pictures don't really do it justice.......

This is my cover. There is a key hidden in the pocket/pouch that says "secret"This is what you see when you open the door. A young couple having a secret liason, LOLThis is the grafitti wall for each person to sign!Here is the full page with the young couple. there are lots of little things hidden behind netting, tulle and organza. I put some paint on the pages for some extra texture. It really helped finish the page for me.The nest is a little pocket. I put a stamped ticket inside for each member of the RR -- it's their ticket into the garden.Don't I procrastinate well when it's report card time???? LOL

This is so full of texture and fun imagery. I love your Secret Garden. And, I think it's time well spent (instead of those boring report cards).
