The making of … a booklet

Goodmorning, Ellie Knol here…
gorgeous weather in Holland at the moment..

Today I’d like to share the making of a booklet,
the covers particularly…
…using Colorations spray, Copper Stone Effects and Tuxedo Velvet paint…..

..although I intended to make 4 cards with embossing in combination with the beautiful sprays and paints from Art Anthology.

The very early stage of the background – heat embossed in clear on a with-clocks-embossed watercolor paper.

I used corrugated cardboard for the front and back cover. I ended up adhering the backgrounds to these.

The Copper Metal Effects adds to the stenciled words (Tick Tock stencil).

Time to assemble…

….the finished project. The inside pages have been cut to size from a not-used-but-second-hand photo album…

It will make for a nice and personal gift..
..to be used as a booklet for photographs, art journaling or maybe just to make some notes.

Did not know I was going to end up with this 🙂
LOVE it…
