Paint scraping technique.
Another technique I like and will do again. I'm not happy with the gold paper flowers - they gotta go but I'm not sure what to replace them with yet.
The image is a freebie from Dover clip art in one of their weekly emails. I used foreign language book pages for the background.
Still thinking about how to bind the pages and am leaning towards mounting them on a heavier chipboard about 1/4" larger and painted dark chocolate brown. I'll probably just use rings to hold it all together but haven't fully decided yet.
I've got #6 almost done - have changed my mind on it about a dozen times...you know how that goes!
