From Fabric to Metal !




From Fabric to Metal !

Yes i know,I do go from one extreme to another lol,the girl cant help it, because my new Cuttlebug embossing folder came today ,I think its the latest one out,Loveeee it,a scrolled frame,had to have a play ,out came the beercans,I keep saying i dont really drink but i do like a shandy now and again haha,hence the stock of cans !(just so's you know hehe)

It was difficult to find the right image,I chose a photo of one of my paintings a river scene,,printed it out on glossy photo paper,then used my old friend Anita's 3D gloss,just to protect the pic on the front of what is now a sketch book ! I added a Dragonfly charm i already had,then hammered with an embossing tool a pattern all round the edges.

Added a gold chain as a pull to open the book (didnt really need it but thought it looked good lol.....and the key is hanging by a Tim Holtz swival clasp,another addition to my stash,will i ever stop buying this stuff ...........and will i ever get time to sit and use a sketch book again ,i,m to busy making them lol.

It all came together using my Bind it All machine.
