Some of you may remember the post I did about Paloma, the little dove of peace. If you missed it and want to know who Paloma is, - you can find it here
Well I finally managed to finish a new little passport for her:
Anyway, I'll give you a quick run down of how I put the book together and show you some more pages.
I used Eileen Hull's Passport book die, and started by cutting all the different parts from mat board, plus two additional pages also from matboard.

I also dry embossed the mat board inner pages, using various embossing folders.
other side of the same double page
a matboard page next to a paper page
inside of the same mat board page
and another sample, I just so love how the mat board can be dry embossed, that was a totally new idea for me....
And a final example of a double page. As you can see, I bound my book with twine and chose the Correspondence set because of the travel theme incorporated in that set.
For the covers I added more textural elements by covering them with texture paste and while still wet pressing a wet text stamp into the paste. Stupidly I forgot to take a picture before finishing the cover with paint, crayon and some die cuts, but I hope you get the idea.
Well, that's it, if you missed my last post about Paloma and would still like to be added to the list, please be in touch soon. I know we have hit busy times for everyone, but this is such a worthy cause in our troubled times.
I am going to finish with a quote from Hilary Clinton's Concession speech last night:
Fighting for what is right is worth it!
Thank you for your visit like always and may Peace be with you!!
