The covers for the booklet were cut out of a piece of aluminum and then colored with alcohol ink. I stamped the front cover with the work JOURNEY. I used a thin paintbrush dipped in alcohol in blending solution to sketch in some details. The whole book is held together with vintage copper rings and a vintage copper safety pin connects all the rings and will be used to attach the charm to my scrapbook.

I love the back of the Fashion page 5. Stamped with parts of a three different stamps and a remnant rub.
The back cover is colored with alcohol ink. I added a remnant rub and covered it with Glossy Accents.
I'm running out of time. I'm so sorry I can't blog all of the details this time. Little stamps take a lot of time :) Hope you all have a great week. -- Mary Elizabeth
PS -- I made this image to put up on Pinterest. It puts the covers and several of my pages together. I thought I'd post it here as well. M.E.
