Nothing and then two come along together!!!!!

I hardly ever use my Bind-It-All machine even though I love seeing things made with it, I suppose the O wires are expensive so I don't experiment with it and need a clear design in my head.  Well I thought I'd make a couple of note books, quite small with some chipboard outers that I bought from the Artistic Stamper some while ago.
I really should have taken a photo of the inside as the paper is really pretty.  The out cover I did months ago and didn't know what to use it for.  Triple embosed with gold powder and stamped into when still hot, then I rubbed some Perfect Pearls into it, which gave it an interesting finish I think.

This one I painted with liquid acrylic colour, black embossed the image, painted the flowers and again rubbed in some Perfect Pearls.  I felt that it needed some other colour so punched the card all the way round and threaded the ribbon through.

My oh my, what a flurry of activity we have had this week!!LOL life's like that sometimes I guess. These are gorgeous!! You might even have inspired me to blow the dust off my BIA - someone asked me to make a book for them weeks ago. I also love your alcohol inks on glass (above!!). Thanks for the tip about the glycerine - I have a bottle downstairs that I bought for something (?) and a versamark pad I was about to consign to the bin so I may try that one out. Good to see you posting, I always love seeing what you have done. Cindyx
