DT Project Book of Love

Good Evening Friends

This is another DT project using Creative Expressions' Hearts Entwined Stamp Plate.  A little book to give to your loved one containing all your favourite quotes and  poems about love.

For the front cover, I used Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 and Spellbinders Matting Basics A 5x7.  The cover was created using jump rings, charms and wire stuck on to several layers of the fancy die cuts stuck together.  This piece was   then covered in foil and painted. The charms etc  are embossed by hand and also run through the Grand Calibur using a suitable 'sandwich'.  Paint, gilding paste and mica are added to colourize the foil and then a sealer is added.

I used the double heart and fancy heart and the 'I love you' sentiment on the front.

 I used the ornate label on the back of the book.

 The inside pages were embossed, crumpled, distressed, torn and covered with a light sealer.


Hope to post again very soon.  Have a lovely evening.

This is amazing, the front cover is a fantastic use of metal, foil and inks and all the layers and texture makes for a stunning piece of art.
I love the distressed pages these add that perfect finishing touch.
