I think the stencil is from Kaisercraft, I stencilled with texture paste and then sprinkle Seth Apter's Patina Oxide powder into the wet paste and then heat set it. I then highlighted it all a bit with a Cracked Pistachio Distress Crayon.
The words were stencilled just with the Distress Crayon and all the other elements were highlighted with Treasure Gold in Copper.
Here is the first double page and pockets, almost entirely decorated with fussy cut elements from the collection.
There are two double pages in this booklet, so this is the second one.
I created different elements to go into the pockets:
The first pocket holds this little booklet that has another pocket inside
Inside that pocket is a little folded card that has one of several quotes I added to the booklet.
All the quotes are from Paulo Coelho's book The Alchemist, one of my favourite books of all time.
The next pocket holds a slightly larger folded card with another quote inside.
The next pocket holds a larger card with a quote on the back side of it.
And finally the last pocket has a bookmark again with an inspirational quote printed on the back:
I kept the back of the booklet really simple, just using the same paper as the front and adding one of the lovely cut apart images from the collection:
I embossed the edge of it with a mix of the Patina Oxide and Rust Baked Texture powders, just to make it stand out a bit.
The booklet closes with the simplest of closures, just a little clip to which I attached a couple of charms, and that was pretty much it.
Hope you are all having a good week, and thank you so much for dropping in,
