Apologies for the ridiculous number of pics! This is the book that we made from a pile of A4 paper and card and Indigo Blu 12x12 paper pack. We used grunge paste on some of the pages through a stencil and distressed the edges of the papers as well as decoupaging up some areas. The bow on the spine was made using the WRMK envelope punch board. We decorated one side of each of the 10 pages during the day and I decided to finish mine off when I got home and added a little Mercury stickles in places. We made pockets in two of the pages and decorated tags with distress inks to pop in them as well as colouring our seam binding with the inks to match.
We also added in two acetate pages, using paperartsy frosting glaze to stamp on them. Apparently it can also be used on glass and mirrors....
If you made it to the end of all those photos, congratulations!
