A mini book

 Some of you may remember the mini book that was on my desk a couple WOYWW's ago.  Well I have now finished it.

I cut the mount board with my ATC sizzix die, used medium gel to adhere some scrap paper to the covers then painted on some crackle paint.

Once it had dried, I coloured the covers with DI flicking some water to help move the ink then used my crop o dile to punch holes and added some metal corners.

 I used my new Tim Holtz techniques that I learnt on the Creative Chemistry 101 course, without this course I would never have thought to stamp with distress stains!

I coloured the keyplate with alcohol inks to grunge it up a bit

Then tied it all with some raffia

Voila, a lovely wee book of inspiration that I will keep in my handbag for those days when I need to remind myself that I can create art, no matter what I think!

I am going to enter this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show for the Tim's techniques the deets can be found here .

Happy Crafting
