Another Metal Book Class Sample
I embossed the soda can cut to size for the cover with a folder with a spray of leaves. I then pushed shades of green embossing powders into the leaves and stems. Then using Perfect Medium, added some of the new Ranger Gilded Gold embossing powder. Love this! Such a soft color and left some of the silver can show through. Then I got really ambitious and covered the whole thing with Judikins Fluxe clear Enamel Resin I mixed in a few drops of Latte alcohol ink to give it a yellowed/brown tint which softened the colors perfectly. I added some lovely new bead caps that I bent to fit around the corners to finish the metal piece off. Almost looks like clossionne. Next was the center front embellishment. These pieces, the backing filigree circle, the filagree flower and those awesome brass leave, small flower lock and the little bells in the center are all new to the store. I used Gilders Paste and Inca Gold to color them. So now to put it all together and decide what I am going to do with the spine and clasp! Stay Tuned!
