Altered Book

Hi all. Made this altered book for the Country view challenge? Painty Pleasures. Enjoyed doing this project. Painted the book in black acrylic paint, covered with Teresa Collins papers. Used my six dis die cut, inked this with black and silver acrylic paint.

Love anything  Tim Holtz, so used one of Tim's embossing folder on the tag. Coloured the tag with Tim's distress paints, just blending the colours together. Made some flowers using Heartfelt Creations stamps and dies, then painted the flowers yet again using Tim's paints.....
This is how the book started on the left.  To finish added some silver hessian ribbon, then rubbed the whole book with gold gilding this product too.

Hope you like my altered book. Leave me a comment as I love to read them.
