Stamp Man - Precious Medals/Metals

My 'Precious Metals' DT piece this week for the Stamp Man is a bound journal with the theme of gold to it. I have stayed away from the Olympic medals, just because I didn't have any inspiration for it. But any metals will be fabulous to see on your projects. The lovely Angela is hosting this week so do pop over and see the amazing samples from the team.

The frame on the front of my book was cut from gold metal sheet, put through an embossing folder. painted with brown acrylic paint, sanded down and gold inka gold rubbed into it. I then added some aged gold embossing enamel on the edge and some on the front and back cover too.

The inspire phrase was cut from gold mirri board stuck onto greyboard and die cut.

I found the words to Spandau Ballet's song and printed out onto paper for the opening of the book and of course other gold can be added when the book is made up.

Just some of the pages
