Journey - a birthday wish book

11:44:00 AM Venus and Luanne @ Sisters Craft Cafe 4 Comments

Hello everyone! I'm sharing a project that I made for a friend who asked me to create a wish book for her gal pal's 30th birthday.

For this book cover, I used seven die-cut elements... There's Sizzix Tim Holtz dress form, Sizzix 3D roses, Sizzix flower layers, Sizzix ornate background frame, Sizzix die fence, Spellinders bird cage die, and Sizix Tim Holtz Journey word die.

I just made the circle background by tracing a plate on Prima paper then hand cut it. 

Inside, I stamped each page with a sentiment: You are simply the best, a clear stamp by Technique Tuesday

After painting the chipboard with scrapbook paint, I thought I'd experiment with a medium that's been lying around my cosmetics kit - a nail polish. Well, the effect looks good, and it dries fast! It's a lot cheaper than stickles!
