Holy cow! Where did the last two weeks go?!
The fabulous Linda has challenged us to use Tim's Worn Cover for this go-round. Our sponsor this time is The Inspiration Emporium and they are giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky player.
I've still got Japan on the brain! I bought this Worn Cover with the intention of using it for Japan pictures, so here we go! Since this is more about using the Worn Cover than an actual technique as is usually the case, I'll let you know what-all I did to "fancy up" my book.
I started with a piece of one of Tim's new fabrics and backed it with Phoomph to give it some stability. I used two of Wendy Vecchi's Archival Inks, Fern Green and Cornflower Blue along the edges and also thru Tim's Latticework stencil. I also used the same colors of Wendy's Embossing Powders on Tim's Letterpress Alphabet. I colored some Crinkle Ribbon with Peeled Paint, Stormy Sky and Antique Bronze Distress Stain. I used some KraftResist papers to make pockets for the inside front and back covers, along with a map from the Crowded Attic paper stash. I even got a few pictures added! All of the pictures are of the Imperial Garden tour that we were so fortunate and blessed to be able to take when we were in Kyoto.
The dangles on the spine of the book we picked up in the different cities we visited while we were in Japan. Oita is where my mother in law was living when she met dad almost 60 years ago. Hakata is where she was born and where her ashes are interred. The little Japanese Geisha was just too cute, and I had to have her!
