From my stash: A 4 slide slide mailer, a wing and key charm, jump rings, some lace and some Kraft paper for the spine and a home made flower.
I started by painting the front and the inside of the mailer with Snowflake Fresco paint. As the mailer had been in my stash for a long time it had broken into two pieces, so I knew I would have to create a spine.
I then blended Nougat around the middle and French Roast around the outside of both the cover and the inside pieces until I was happy with the result.
Sorry for the blurry picture, below you can see a corner after the crackle has done it's work.
When everything was dry I stamped my chosen butterflies and word stamps in Plum Archival, added some stencilling with Adirondack Espresso ink and finally some background text in Watering can Archival.
I made a little spine from Kraft paper for extra strength and also added some Tissue Tape along the inside for the same reason.
The back was covered with a piece of the scrapbook paper and I embellished with some lace and charms.
Well, that's it and I hope you like it.
See you next time
