French Travel Journal

This is the journal I made from the 7 gypsies journal covers  The covers are fabulous and didn't need much adding and I made some signatures in black card for the inside  I used the fabulous lace trimming between the cover and the fly sheet and decorated the pages ready to add photos and journalling  The products used are from Calico Crafts Here

Meandering fabric book

I enjoyed a day with Lin and Leandra from Paperartsy making this fabric book  There are a mixture of techniques including fabric transfers and removing organza with a soldering iron - a great experience

Curiosity book/box

This chipboard box designed as a book leant itself well to the graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe papers and stamps  I started by painting both inside and out in black acrylic paint then used the back cover of the 12x12 album with its small diamonds for the cover    The keyhole cover is die cut from grungeboard painted black and stressed before attaching with brads  I used various papers and embellishments from the Curiosity shoppe range to decorate the box  stamping with the bottles and labels stamps for the bottles  and labels on the inside which I coloured and embossed before adding them with foam to raise them slightly  The eye attached to the spine is cut from the papers and stuck to a Tim Holtz fragment with glossy accents
