Little Book with Fabric Pages
This was going to be another mirror compact as it has been made in the same way, but I thought I was getting a bit repetitive, so I made some fabric pages and turned it into a little book. I used Crafty Individuals stamps, including the new background on the covers, which is such a fantastic stamp and will, I'm sure, become a favourite. I used some gorgeous Basic Grey Porcelain paper, which was painful to cut into, and then I coloured the fabric with Glimmer Mists and Distress Inks to match it. I then coloured the dominoes to match with Brilliance inks, and pressed them into the portion of the CI background stamp that I wanted, and glazed them with Crackle Glaze (didn't get much crackle, though). I haven't photographed all the pages as you get the general idea, but I then stitched them together and sewed them into the book spine. I was going to go round the edge of the dominoes with the Viva Precious Metal Gold Paint but then I thought, no Lucy, put your hands on your head and walk away from the paint ........!
