Recently I was bitten by the ‘smash book bug’ 🙂
I’ve seen so many people make or start one, it seems to be a real hype. And while I’m not one to just join any hype for the sake of it, the fact that you get to be creative and can turn a smash book-base into your very own uniquely styled piece intruiged me very much.
I chose to buy a Smash*Book by K&Company (they have many different ones): it’s the ‘Pretty Pink’ version! I want to share some pictures of what I’ve done with my Smash Book so far – getting into my creative flow if you will.
Each version of the K&Company Smash Books comes in a differently coloured binding and with a different front cover pattern. This version had flowers and I chose to make them *POP* a little more by simply colouring them the way I liked.
BOOK COVER INSIDES
The inside of this Smash Book was simply green – actually a green I really like, but I still wanted to add some more colour. I just love colourful things. When I saw this striped wrapping paper I immediately had the idea to cover the front inside with it, as well as the pouch on the inside of the back. Turned out just like I wanted 🙂
‘PUSH MY BUTTONS’ -page
The first real page I filled was this simple double page in kind of dark, washed-out blue dots. The perfect background to display some of my beloved, cute, funny, interesting buttons I have. I intend to add more buttons in here whenever I get some new ones 🙂
‘COLOUR ME CURIOUS’ – page
When I first flipped through the Smash Book and came across this double page I thought it might turn out a bit boring. I didn’t really know what to “write” in there or how to fill it. But then I thought of my nail polish collection and figured it’d be perfect to “showcase” swatches of my favourite colours. I know, I know, still not super creative, but with this page it’s the best I could think of…
I will blog about my updates whenever I’m done with the next few pages 😉
