Recipe Book - FabScraps Country Kitchen Collection

Hello Everyone

I have a tutorial up on the FabScraps blog for a recipe book that I created for FabScraps.  I used the gorgeous Country Kitchen Collection.

This post is graphic be warned! ;-) Let's start with the cover.

I used acrylic paints and some papers and also embossed the platter and the chefs hat.

Then come the rest of the pages.  I love the French Country feel to this collection and so this is what I also brought to the recipe book.  I kept it shabby and little rustic, by using lots and lots of white acrylic paint.

What would a Denise project be without lots of fussy cutting!!!! ;-)

This is one of my favourite patterned papers becuase of the sunflowers.  Aren't they just gorgeous!!!!

This crate paper is just so super! ;-)

You might think that the white washing is a little rustic and it is! LOL...It was intentional and adds to the French Country feel.

I really enjoyed creating this recipe book and it actually came together quite easily.
I certainly plan to use it and add recipes galore! ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a super weekend!
