The Eden Project scrapped!

Today's random word at Boot Camp is 'grow'........to me this says personal growth.......or plant growth....and I've gone with the second. When we holidayed in Cornwall last year....we visited The Eden Project.....I took far too many photos to go in my mini Cornwall album....so have been just waiting to make an Eden mini book.
For anyone who doesn't know what the amazing Eden Project is........and it truly is amazing.......... their website is here ...... and well worth looking at.
Wikipedia describes it...........
'The Eden Project is a visitor attraction in the United Kingdom, including the world's largest greenhouse. Inside the artificial biomes are plants that are collected from all around the world. The project is located in a reclaimed Kaolinite pit.
The complex is dominated by two enclosures consisting of adjoining domes that house plant species from around the world. Each enclosure emulates a natural biome. The first dome emulates a tropical environment, and the second a Mediterranean'
The last 2 pages are descriptions of Eden downloaded from their website.......you can click on them to enlarge.......just need to put rings on the book and it's finished!!

Wow what a great project, I had never heard of this Eden Project before.. no wonder you took so many photos, they're all great.. You're putting the photo course you took in good practice :) xx

Cheri said...

That is quite an ambitious little project for a single prompt! Kudos! It looks great!

Amy said...

Jacky thanks for all of this information and a glimpse into your wonderful mini - I have heard of this project but it is always a lot more fun to hear about these things from people who have actually been there and seen it - rather than my TV viewing!

Deb said...

Wow, Jacky. This is an interesting post - I have never heard of the Eden Project (I know...I live in a cave! ha!) but I'm fascinated by it. I love that you used it for the "grow" prompt - makes perfect sense!

Thanks for sharing this. I'm going to learn more about The Eden Project!

Wow great job Jacky, so many pages and all so interesting. That place looks great, a bit like our botanic gardens over here in Belfast but ours wouldn't be as big as that.

I live minutes from the Botanic Gardens!

I love the big dramatic photos you have chosen for this project Jacky. It gives a great effect. Maybe I'll get there some day and see for myself.

What amazingly dedicated work! Love the torn-edge on the journalling pages (I'm a fan of lots of journalling myself!). A superb keepsake ...

Even without seeing your beautiful photos I know I'd love to visit the Eden Project. Love the mini-book; they're so much fun to make.
