A Book Of Love

 Hi There
Today to show is a project which was published in the Valentine issue of Magnolia Ink 2013
 I had such fun making this from and old book from a junk shop.

Firstly I glued the inside pages together and left clipped together until they were dry.  Then using a craft knife, I cut a large rectangle out of the middle for the vintage postcards. The whole thing I then painted with gesso.
 For the postcards I used various Magnolia Mini World and aged using distress Walnut Stain
 Papers were Maja

The front I painted Tilda in sepia and embossed with clear EP. Once dry I cracked and added more Walnut stain
Thanks so much for visiting me

Bye for now

♥ Love ♥

Yes its coming to that time of year again when we are full of love and all things hearts

This is my card which made the cover of last years Special Edition Magnolia Ink. 
I really loved this issue as we went Vintage and Magnolia had the great idea of turning it into a Old Vintage Newspaper. It was a one off Special Edition.

VERY proud to design for and be published in
Over the next few days I will show you what else I made from and old book from a junk shop which was published in this issue :D
and I bet the next issue of Magnolia Ink will be due veryyyyy soon :D
I cant wait to see what my teamies have come up with this time
Until then
