Here's the front of my finished book
I used the smaller book first and started off covering it with a layer of white gesso. I then applied Paper Artsy Fresco chalk paints over then rubbed a little Silver Treasure Gold paste over the top. The image on the front is from a set by Crafty Individuals added using gel medium, with more medium over the top to seal and secure the image. I applied a thin coat of Stardust Stickles all over, except on the image.
I added Platinum Stickles around the edge of image then attached a scrap of lace down the left side and attached a metal key found in my stash. I made a closure using two pieces of lace and a couple of large gems, attached to front and back of the box.
On the back I used some Crafty Individuals stamps and Stazon Black ink before applying the metal scissors embellie.
Inside I used another of the CI images and a small wooden clock charm, which I covered with the Treasure Gold. More scraps of lace, Stickles and lots of gems.
It was a fun project to complete - thank you Debbie.
I still have the larger book box which is still a WiP, I'll share once I've completed it.
