Somewhere over the rainbow

This page was published in Ready- Set- Create web magazine Oct/Nov 2011 issue
This interactive page was quite a project for me.. I did the semi- final round on our first ever Israeli scrapbooking competition and the task for this one was a hard one: use Wizard of Oz inspiration and make an interactive element on your page. I didn't want to take this task " as is" and just to use some temed papers with maybe carnival costumes, so I went to another direction.
The song quote was a main thing on this page and it's kind of a very long title. Then there was no place left for anything, but a small folded book- my interactive one on thei page.
I used Sassafrass products, Tando Creative frame and lots of techniques here:
Painting the frame and the corners with distress paint, hand sewing the rainbow colors over the page; Die cut the folded flower base with sticker and button added for the sun; Distressing and changing the colors of the huge chipboard letters; doodling around letters as part of my title; Making a book with real book board and making the cover with embossed and painted grungeboard.
The inside of the book are my wishes for my girls- all inspired from Wizard of OZ

Here is first opening of the book

And here is the second with my wishes

Hope you like this page- it was a lot of endless work  done here.
