Laid Back Challenge (2)

I have completed the mini-book which I have called 'Angels'. I used two tiles, one for the front and one for the back which I first gave two coats of gesso as a base for the paint. I then coated all over with Jacquard Halo Green Gold Lumiere paint using a stippling action. I applied a diamond pattern in black Stazon ink using a diamond heart stamp from the Invoke Arts 'Textured Hearts' plate to front and back surfaces of the book. For the front tile I applied some Calypso Beadazzles with Glossy Accents and also applied four 8mm square Guttermann mirrored beads. The Angel word was stamped using small letters on a green plate and this applied also with Glossy Accents. I edged the sides of both tiles with gold Krylon pen. For the insides I made a concertina fold insert and painted one side with Stewart Gill Alchemy Fusion paint and the other with Aurora (to contrast with the colours in the Beadazzles). I then decorated them with cutouts from the Crafty Individuals miniature tile books and other SG craft embellishments such as Gilding chips in Rapture and Bijou Blends in Amethyst and Cornelian. the insert was then stuck to the front and back finished tiles and closed with a length of Mizuhiki cord in dark metallic green threaded with some seed beads in clear and green.

I really love the textures provided by using different media to decorate and am very pleased with the end result. Will certainly be doing some more.
