A Book Of Love

 Hi There 
and a happy Monday to you 

Today to show is a project which was published in the Valentine issue of Magnolia Ink 2013
 I had such fun making this from and old book from a junk shop.

Firstly I glued the inside pages together and left clipped together until they were dry.  Then using a craft knife, I cut a large rectangle out of the middle for the vintage postcards. The whole thing I then painted with gesso.
 For the postcards I used various Magnolia Mini World and aged using distress Walnut Stain
 Papers were Maja

The front I painted Tilda in sepia and embossed with clear EP. Once dry I cracked and added more Walnut stain
Thanks so much for visiting me

Bye for now
