Thank you Lynne!

Hellooo!  Its been an age since I had a mini book to decorate :D  This one is a new one from ~Tando Creative~ and measures 14.5x12cm with 4 inside pages.  I found inspiration from the very talented Lynne Perrella...who wouldn't as her stamp sets are amazing aren't they?

The background has been sprayed with pink, lemon & chocolate Dylusions then a large scroll embossed in old gold.  I used Transfer Artists paper to stamp on, coloured with copics, then ironed onto some cream cotton.  I was looking to create different textures.  I sewed the fabric to some coloured bookprint before glueing on.  The Tando Scroll has been sprayed like the background then lovely Decoart Glamour Dust painted on (if you haven't discovered this its a must have :D).  I added some beads for her necklace & headband.   I covered the pages inside with bookprint and left plain to add to later.

For a list of stockists for all things Tando please take a look ~here~.  Thank you for popping by today, HUGS xxx

Hi Karen,
I love how you've decorated this little book. The cover looks like leather.

Er, one word: amazing! Now, I can't stick to just one word posts so: I love the stamping and the embossing and the use of text pages - just gorgeous. Love it all then!! I own quite a number of DecoArt products but not that one! Looks good.
