'Memories' book.

Made with 7Gypsies concertina book blank First I applied gesso with a credit card, then I added aqua, lettuce and lilac in the same way (I dried each layer with a heat gun).

I then stamped all over the background with lots of different stamps (swirls, flowers and flourishes) in a stone coloured chalk ink, then I inked around the edges with aged mahogany distress ink, sounds like a weird combination I know but it really works! The main stamp I stamped onto mica with black stazon and added a scape of white paper behind just the stamped image so it stood out. The hinges are Tims grungeboard.
