Home Bookfolding Project

 Here is another bookfolding project I have made.  This time I have used two Debbi Moore CDs - one for the bookfolding pattern and the other was the Shabby Chic Garden CD for the toppers, sentiments and flowers.
 After I had done the bookfolding I painted two coats of gesso onto the front, back spine and inside the book.  I then used various Crafter's Companion Texture Stamps with a toffee, smoky grey and sepai Versafine ink pad to cover over the spine and both sides of the book.  Then I had an idea to use my Indigo Blu flitter glue and guilding flakes which I have had for a few years now.  Unfortunately I think the glue isn't working as it should as all I seemed to do was get in a great mess and very little guilding flakes stayed on the book.  I then decided to use Versamark ink pad and then put over some Debbi Moore brown embossing powder.  This worked but there was still some residual feeling of stickiness so out came my Crafter's Companion Sparkle and Shine.  I made sure I stood outside as these sprays make me cough and cough.
 Next came the time for me to add the toppers from the CD and the sentiments.  
I then cut out a number of the flowers, inked around the edges and then added some pearl drops to the centre.  I have finished the decorated book with some ribbon and then wrapped it up in cellophane to give as a present.
