Last week, Bevlea, Glenda, Caro(no blog) & I got together at Caros to make an etched metal book.
Bevlea had stamped the metal with the Tim Holtz Book stamp & then we etched. Amazing this time with no spills!!
We then made plaster pages for the book, making a lot of mess along the way.
Last week Bevlea & I got together to assemble ours, but, immediately ran into trouble with the plaster pages, so ditched them, and decided to use art paper instead, using coptic stitching.
Then we added some bits & bobs to the side & 'VOILA' a new book!
I am thrilled with the result, though, I may have gone a tad overboard with the decorations!!!!
May use the book as a small journal to record our exploits,  when Bevlea & I head off for another long arty weekend at Queenscliff!!
