Ingrid's Circle Book
In our Honolulu AB RR, for each book we work in, we are asked to describe the technique we used. I went quite literal with Ingrid's Circle Book this month. I wanted to create a circle book for my spread. Since this is a 3-dimensional object, the challenge was to find a way to incorporate my "pop-up" circle book into Ingrid's loose-leaf, three-ring paged book.
First, I selected several different papers decorated with circles and ended up creating three separate circle books. I used four different patterns for each circle book (top photo). The circle books needed to be folded flat in order to be incorporated into the book. So, on the front of my page (third photo), I created three quarter-circle pockets to hold my folded circle books. On the back of my page (bottom photo), I made a quarter-circle pocket to hold the tutorial.
