Rochester July 2014 Workshop - Sample 1

Morning everyone.The project I'm sharing today, that was inspired by my friend Val White, is a small Chipboard booklet that my Workshop Class ladies will be creating, on Saturday 5th July, (Group One) and Saturday 12th July ( Group Two).
The booklet is filled with embossed pages from all the Embossing Folders that I own.....well, a few of them! I can flick through my booklet quickly to see the EF I have in my stash. Or, you could fill it with pages of stamped images, as a record of the stamps you own!

Two Chipboard Covers, both sides of each one painted with pretty colours, using Emulsion Paints ( Wilko £1' taster 'Pots).
When totally dry, I stenciled an image over the paint then stamped with JOFY Stamps using Archival Ink. The images were painted with Distress Inks.
Some Treasure Gold gilding wax around the edges ( hides the mess I made with the paint going where it shouldn't!) a couple of jump rings, a quick spray with 'Spray and Shine' ... Bish, bash, bosh.... job done!

Workshop Sample 2 soon... not sure it will be needed 'cos this should keep them busy!
Thank you for looking at my Blog today.
