Love book

I am playing again with Frilly and funkie. This challenge is all about four big Renaissance Men- Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael.  I was inspired by Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino and his probably most known angels painting-Sistine Cherubs... it is all about angels, hearts and love in my head. I made a book with heart, it`s suppose to be for some love lyrics and sentiments or ...... Book is also made with cork, like my tag yesterday.

Some of you asked how I made cork tag. I made a tutorial , but be aware that this is my first tutorial and my english is….dissaster!!

So lets go:

First randomly stamp on heavy paper - maybe cardboard.

Stamp some text on regular paper (or you can use some printed paper). Cut small squares and use distress ink on the edges for a vintage touch. 

 Glue everything together.
Measure and cut cork. For this project I chose to use 4 millimetre thick cork and it`s perfect.

Also cut 2 pieces of blank paper for inside covers. I am a very messy person and I prefer to finish this inside covers at the end. 

Glue the cork on a blank cover first and then add the front cover. It’s good to put something  heavy on this (a heavy book is perfect) and leave it to dry overnight. The next day the covers will be dry and neat.


If you wish to make a frame too: cut some cardboard – don’t forget about right angels! Choose an embossing folder for texture and paint it. Leave to dry.  Now add some distress embossing powder and heat. Before you wipe distress embossing powder (to remove the release crystals), add some pearls in powder and heat again.
 I also made some book corners with the same technique, buthere I used grungeboard. 

Embellish your covers, bind it all and…TA DA; you are finished!

Hope you understand it all!?!?? LOL
