graphic 45 and me take 2

hi again. i am back to show you the second project i completed using my graphic 45 papers and embellies.
first i start off with some claudine helmet multi-medium and i attached all my papers to the chipboard

 for the gate portion i covered it with a layer of black distress paint followed by silver distress paint and once dried cover both gate portions with a layer of clear rock candy distress crackle paint
 i love how it turned out!

 next it was just a matter of assembling the book. i added a bit of shimmer spray to each page to make it pop and more festive.

 and this is the whole book put together and displayed open on my table. it really shimmers at night by candle light.
 once again, thanks for dropping buy and please do leave a comment and let me know what you think!

i will be back on Friday with my final post showing you what i created with the left overs as well as posting why it is good to leave comments on peoples posts!!! (wink wink)
