I thought I should share another of my steampunk projects with you today. The current challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges is 'Gold' and this altered notebook seemed to be the perfect project.
Regular visitors will know that I recently bought two of the Sizzix layered Bigz dies, the ones with the texture fades embossing folders ... the bee and the dragonfly.
For this project I used the bee die. I started by covering the cover to a small notebook with some thick hammered card which I had painted that with bronze metallic acrylic paint. Once the paint was dry I ran it through a honeycomb embossing folder.
