DT Project #2 by Minxy : Featuring:

Hay snazzy folk, I see you're back again for my second instalment.
This is gonna be a pic heavy post as there is lots to see! And far too much to explain.
I used 50% of my paper on just this project, but you'll see why as you scroll down.

I made the book from scratch using 12x12 cardstock for the pages and mountboard for the covers, I used some Claudine Hellmuth Sticky Canvas to bind it together once the papers were on. The front cover was adorned with a G45 chipboard Die-cut, Idea-ology, Beads and other bits from my stash.

I did a variation of an accordion fold for the spine and the pages were added so the hinge was hidden, I learned this technique from watching an online tutorial.

Then it was just a case of using the gorgeous G45 papers to cover all the pages, and adding pockets and slots with the leftover 12x12 cardstock

I stamped out some bottles from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe Cling 2 stamp set onto a clear clearly for art sheet, I favoured it over acetate as I wanted to be able to heat and mould the bottles to give them more of a realistic curve.

I embellished the pages with a mix of random things from my stash and the G45 Chipboard Die-Cuts.

As you can see I made all the pages with top slots so you can hide away, notes, pics, whatever takes your fancy.

More G45 papers, another 'Curiosity Shoppe' stamped bottle filled with mini flying pigs I cut from the 'Bazaar of Wonders' paper

A hidden image behind the doors, Stamped using a G45 Cling Steampunk stamp.

And to keep it all together I used a link from an old bracelet, and some charms from my stash, held on with some CE Screw Top Brads.
I hope you have enjoyed today's project, If you have any question please feel free to ask in the comments x
I'll be back on Friday with my final piece of the week.
Till then stay inky
