Also from the "new" book. I wasn't keen on making the image on the cover of the book, but I really wanted to make this! Then I started cutting the border.... This took over 10 hours to cut thanks to that crazy crazy border.
[Clarification: This is cut paper. It's not so much that the border was *hard* to cut, but rather incredibly repetitious and small. All those sharp corners cut with an exacto knife meant lots of little semi-attached bits to clean up and deal with. My wrist isn't too happy with the outcome, but I sure am!]
I was playing around with different background colors--check it out in my scrapbook here
