I have been making this book for the last 3 days,I just wanted to make a real one with a hard back cover and a spine to it too,the covers,I bought,from craft obsession,s the rest is from my stash,
I have covered the book with modge podge,to protect it,then used one of Tim's frames for the centre,stamped the free image from craft stamper and adhered it to the back of the frame. Then I have applied glossy accents,to the stamped image. I have taken,a piece of Tim;s paper and adehered it to the spine which I made with a piece of chipboard.Then taken some more of Tims,locks,and things made a hole and added the chain,so it can open,and lock up. I linked 2 of his chains together so I can open the book properly,then just finished with one of his hinges,which i pained with distress inks. I have also added some paper which I have distressed with old,paper,and adhered to inside,will show that another day,as may embellish,some of the pages.
Just hope you like it.
I have taken 2 photos,as one was taken during the day and the other tonight,not much difference, I am going to enter this into the artistic stamper challenge really admire the work those ladies do on there and wanted to make sure what I entered was good enough. I know I have a long way to go,but its worth a try,
Artistic Stamper something old something new,the butterfly charm is old,Tims,frame etc are all new.
