So I finally have got my first page for the chunky fat book done ... this one is called "Enchanted" I chose to do a doorway with an image of an enchanted place behind it ... I like to use things such as the charms just to add some interest ...

I used Distress inks on paper for the background, chipboard as a base, the door is made from card which I used Tim Holtz crackle paint on (in antique linen) I used grunge board for the hinges ..this too was painted in crackle paint (brushed pewter)
I added large brads to keep it in place. I used a Clarity stamp called sprig to add a little more detail to the background & gold embossing powder around the edges.
The door knob is from another of the T.Holtz idea-ology range.

I've been busy playing with new products just recently, things including the 10 second studio Metals & tools & I've got my mitts on some claudine hellmuth paints (that'll be Dyan from art from the hearts fault lol) ..she showed us them at one of her workshops we went on & so of course we 'needed' them !
I'm also busy hosting a chunky fat book swap over on UKS .. I've had back a couple of the swaps already & they're lovely ! .. can't wait for them all to come in, though with 4 groups of 8 women & each woman making 8 pages it could get a little manic ! ... never mind that's half the fun isn't it (she asks hopefully ? lol)
I've attached a couple of pictues of my metal art frame, though only sneaky previews as it is a work in progress at the mo .. more work needed on it yet ..
