I inked the edges of the pages first.
Then I covered the front and back with
My Minds Eye paper and stuck pink Glitter paper on inside covers.
Some of the books I have have a red line across the pages as they are bought from the local card shop, and they will exchange them, so they mark them. So I had t think of a way of covering the red line.
I bought this pretty pink leafy ribbon at local China store for 95 cents a roll, very pretty isn't it? It sort of holds the book together. I added a couple of parchment flowers and a butterfly on the top. All stuck on with glue gun.
I,m really pleased with how this has turned out and now the problem I have, is which Sister to give it to !!!!!!
Watch out as I have volunteered for another pattern of a TRAIN, part done as I write this, so will post when complete. I have also decorated the book 'Love' I showed yesterday, so I will show that another day. And the heart within a heart I showed yesterday, I decorated up and gave it to my friend here in Spain, she posted it on Facebook HERE.
