I made this mini book using my Zutter Bind-it-All for the first time. I decided to use papers and manila file folders that I had on hand - and hit them all with a little - ok A LOT of GLIMMER!
The cover is a piece of Acetate film that I sprayed with CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRIES and a little DAZZELING DIAMONDS on the front – and some FROZEN LAKE on the back – all through a swirly mask.
* Notice the “OOPS?” I punched too many holes the first time I used the bind it all – but used it as an OPPORTUNITY to add ribbon and twine ( on the left edge of the cover!)
I painted the GLIMMER GLASS butterfly with INDIAN SUMMER and MELLOW YELLOW Glimmer GLAZE, and some MERMAID Glimmer GLAM. I used some GOLDEN GODDESS and MERMAID GLIMMER GLAM on the paper spiral flowers that I made for the cover, along with Highlights throughout the book using more GLIMMER GLAZE in INDIAN SUMMER, WICKED, and MELLOW YELLOW. The lace on the cover was sprayed with PUMPKIN PIE GLIMMER MIST TOO!
The 2nd page is a cool Tattered Angels Bingo Board card – that was sprayed with the above 3 colors, PLUS a little PINEAPPLE that was sitting on my desk too! I put a paper towel over it while it was wet and rolled my brayer over it to distribute the color. The rest of the book contains pages that have been misted - sometimes with a mask over them to create cool swirl effects. ( I added some GOLDEN TERRACOTTA GLIMMER MIST to some of the pages too!). I Love how the Tattered Angles Tile came out – I think it looks so cool to incorporated as a “page” and with the words covered in glitter too!
