Christmas Present

 Lovely Christmas decorations makes last week ladies Thank you for joining in with us. This is the last week of Christmas at the Hatters and we would love you to make a little present or stocking filler. I have decorated the front and back of a 8 by 6 ins book in vintage style. The book is suitable for a photo album or art journal, the inside has been left blank for the recipient to do with as they please.
 I painted around the edge of the front and back cover in brown and then covered with patterned  paper I then edged with gold paint and gold leafing pen. The tag has been distressed inked with bundled, dried marigold and tea dye. Stamped with clock faces. I cut a square of crinkled up brown wax paper and a crafty individuals image. these have been layered up with vintage fabric and lace. The swirl has been die cut in felt and decorated with mother of pearl buttons and black bling. The title I have painted the cardboard oval with gold and stamped as swirl on to it. Thank so much for looking and your lovely comments are always much appreciated.
 Do be sure and check out Florence, Janet and Chrissie lovely projects. Take care and thanks joining us. Hugs as Always. Sandra XXX
