I have distressed the papers with Vintage photo,Rusty Hinge,Frayed Burlap.Also added Tim To bind the book i used Holtz tissue tape distressed this with vintage photo.
I used my idewology fragment and added latte,sandal and brushed corduroy to the fragment.Then added blending solution so that a gap would appear where it says underneith .Just a friendly reminder.I have tried to get better photo but light is not good today very drab!
I have added chipboard swirl and distressed with vintage photo added pearl.
I have stamped with clear distress ebossing ink stamp from time holtz collection and then ebossed with copper ultra thick embossing powder,heated with a gun.

The back of the book i again distressed.Stamped butterfly stamp cut out distressed then added Glossy accents two curled the corners of the wings up as drying.Then added 3 gems to the centre of the body
Then added a Crafty individuals Life's Journey square to stampboard covered the edges with tissue tape and distressed.Added button with cottonthread to finish.
