Compendium of Curiosities week 13

Wow here we are with another week of Linda's CCC and already we are up to week 13. How can that be????

I just loved making grungepaper flowers this week to go on (yet another) book cover. Follow the instructions on P.65 of the master's book and you too can make them. I have added glitter. distress stickles, distress crackle paint, DIs and some of the TH vintage shabby papers. Yey I think they turned out really well especially with some glitzy brads in the middle of them.

Now this book cover is a secret, so I can't tell you what it's for or who it's for, but it will be a special present when it is finished. I have used papers from the Shabby Princess (and these are amazing free downloads that I told you about some weeks ago)  and other bits of goodies from various boxes around my craft room. The flower paper is from the Papermania Rose Garden stack. The music paper with the butterflies on is one of my digital collage creations. There's some lace, flowers, punched leaves, silver frame (Dawn Bibby's), glass glintz and a bluebird for happiness. The ticket is my own, I added freebie swirls in photoshop elements. There I think I've covered it all. Just gotta make the pages now. The idea is to do board pages with lots of secret hideaways for journalling and photos to be added at a later date.

Mmmmm with this shabby chic look I can't wait to get started.

Have a wonderful weekend.
