Mixed Media Altered Novel for AALL & Create

Hello crafty people ! Today I have a very vintage chic project to share with you !

Here arethe beautiful stamps fm Ab, Aida and Tracy by AALL & Create.

I started by stamping on different shapes of chipboards and then coloring them with Finnabair's impasto paint and  rust paste. The colors mixing and blending each other created the most beautiful rich and vintage looking.

Then I glued the chipboards together with some handmade paper tags fm gorgeous 7dots paper. The bookmarks on the front can be removed and put to other pages easily since I do not glue them, I just put them into the gap btw the chipboards !

I also made a simple journal page with the beautiful stencil fm Aida and lightly highlighted it with the brown rust.

One thing we cannot forget is the crackle I created with the Finnabair clear crackle paste. On the top I put light brown rust to make it more aged and distress. Please zoom in to see how beautiful they are on both the top corner and the bottom !

I sincerely hope you will love this project as it is one of my fav !! thank you !
