I decided to make another little Bind It All book today. I used Rustic Gem papers by Diane's Daughters - as popularised by the crafty talents of Andrea!:o}
I used a variety of different patterns and also used rubberstamps to add sentiments and images.
You will see stamped words and images by Catslife Press, Tim Holtz Collection, Stampington Imperial Cargo, Penny Black and Crafty Individuals. I stamped most of the images and words in Walnut Stain Distress Ink, also rubbing the edges of the papers with this ink to blend all the papers in. I used a black Archival Ink for the papers that were darker patterns.
I also added dragonfly brads to the pages and used small charms, attached with jumprings as a little extra to the overall look. For the little extra words, I used Tim Holtz DooDads and covered them with Glossy Accents.
I really enjoyed making this little book - it was made easier as the papers are so lovley to stamp on....and they match together so well.
Thanks for looking!
