I used all fabric... browns that looked like rock! The background is a sparkle looking print..perfect for a dinosaur dig! I made the rocks go around the edges of the page, and made them into pockets so a dinosaur could "hide" under or behind the rocks to be found!
There are even some bones left in the side of the mountain...he can see, but can't dig for, but he can imagine! I thought they were just a nice little accent for the page and its theme.
The "middle" rock that is to be "dug" around.. is made out of "sloppy" cut triangles, (meaning no exact straight sides, but curvy and ....sloppy!) Then I placed some side by side around in a circle, and then some on top of those, so he digs through first row of "rock" then another "row" of rock till he
finds..... Dinosaur bones!!!
The "rocks" around the edges of the page are made of fabric where i just sewed it in a curvy circle or rectangles and then sewed them to the page to form pockets...so other dinosaurs can hide and be found!
This is how the 2 pages will be in the book... can't get them side by side here on the post, but... you get the picture!
I have not sewed the pages together yet....that will be the last thing I do as I will be binding them as you would a quilt and also making fabric spine, holding all pages together. So...follow along and stay tuned! And I hope you are getting the "quiet book bug" and start one for your own little one!
