I have called this the little treasure box because to me that's what it looks like :-) I have used TH paints on the box in gold and black and used Stazon to stamp my images. I coloured the inside of the box black so that the dominos would stand out more. I have used a gold Krylon pen to colour in two chipboard letters and edged them in black paint to age them. I have put them on top of the box along with a metal emblishment. For the dominos I used 3 colours of TH inks and then stamps on to them with black Stazon. I went around the edges and the black of the dominos with the gold Krylon pen and then fished each off with a little gem or charm. The two letters are the initials of the person I will be sending it to :-)

The second of my mini books, but this one is on the theme on Paris! This was also for Andrea's birthday so I have kept to the black and white theme too. The covers are in mount board and black and white papers for the pages. UTE power used on the covers. This has a little page divider made with black ribbon which has a charm on the end. Some bits and bobs on the pages and finished off with a little charm.
The star book was made for my friend Andrea's birthday. I love black and white! This has some silver in it too. Again I've used some mount board, along with some jigsaw pieces. Used some papers to cover the front and back and paints for the pages and to stamp in the bakgrounds. Stazon has been used for the images on the stampboard etc. I then finished off with some different wools and attached them to the silver rings.

The 7th February is my good friend Denize's birthday. I wanted to make something special for her so I made this little oriental book. I started with some fabby papers and 2 pieces of 2" by 2" stamp board. I used ultra thick embossing powder mixed with some black embossing power and did about 3 layers on each piece of stamp board, this was quite difficult because it takes the stamp board a while to heat up and the power blows everywhere! Anyway on the last layer I added some gold power and while it was still hot inked up an oriental stamp with red stazon and stamped in to the powder. I painted up some chipboard letters in her initials using gold paint and stamped over them used the red stazon, added them to the covers along with some words which I dabbed with inks. For the pages I folded some beautiful papers and added embelishments to them. I then added a beautiful clasp to finish off the book. I am so pleased with it I hope she likes it. I have also made some other bits for her..........
