When I went to Scrapfest By The Sea in August this year, I saw the most gorgeous altered book created by Trina Mclune. You can see her beautiful book here.I knew immediately that I wanted to make something similar and while spending a day with Shell during the last school holiday’s, I found the perfect book to alter.
I had intended to take progress photos but once I got started, I just kept on going.
The flower spray is a Prima vine and the Joy embellishment is one I cut from shrink plastic using the Cameo. The Xmas tickets and Bingo cards are from a Kerri Bradford kit that I bought a couple of years ago.
I divided the pages evenly but then adjusted them a bit as some pages were ticker than others, tucked each section under and glued them in place. Then I inked the edges with Vintage photo and added some vintage gold metallic rub as well. When all the elements were safely glued in place, I sprayed the whole project with gold Glimmer Mist, not that you can see that in the photos.
So simple, so effective – I urge you to try this yourself. You will love the result!
I am entering this project over at City Crafter Challenge Blog, a site new to me. The theme for their challenge #183 is Game Night – to create a project that includes game pieces, playing cards etc.
