Welcome to Andrea's Creative Quests. It is my hope that this will be a place that I am able to share the treasures which arethe results of my adventures in ART. I desire to be able to showcase my creations, keep myself motivated to create, and inspire others to embark on their own ARTistic adventures.

Cinderella Shape Book - Picture Heavy!

I was perusing the Cricut.com message board recently and came across a beautiful shape book made by Pam at http://www.thebugbytes.com/.  Her book was so incredible that I had to try one out myself.  Again, I used my Cricut, white provo craft paper, my copics, and a few touches from a clear At You Spica pen.  The cartridge I used was Disney's Happily Ever After.  The book is bound using a Zutter Bind-It-All.  Pam's book showed Cinderella as a scullery maid, dressed for the ball, and dancing with Prince Charming.  I added one last page to my book, Cinderella in her wedding gown facing the prince. While this is still a work in progress, I wanted to share it with you all.  I have a few ideas about what I want to add to make the book feel more complete, but then I am also still questioning what the final touches will be.  I would love to hear what you think!

This is the front view of the Cinderella Book
I used complimenting patterned paper on the page faces, overlayed with the Cricut cut characters.The patterned paper comes from DCWV paper stacks.
In this picture you can see the clear At You Spica pen that I used on the wedding gown and veil. 
This is the final page of the book.  I am concerned about the precarious perch that the Prince has on this page.  I am looking for a way to stabilize him so that the does not get torn off.
Thank you for stopping by, I would love to hear what you have to say about my ART.

Wow, if someone gave me that when I was like 7 years old, I would had walked on air for months and I would still have it now slightly tattered but much loved. It is so cool.
