~ Grunged-up Board Book


I made this book over the course of three nights — I adhered patterned paper, inked, stamped, inked some more, painted, stamped some more and added Perfect Pearls to both the pages you see and ones that you don’t see.  


Every page has pull out tabs for extra pictures or journaling.  Ribbons and eyelets are added to those pieces that pull out.  The last bit was adding the ribbon and grungeboard to the cover.  The eyelets in the grungeboard were filled in with a clear glaze.


Feeling very inspired from Tim Holtz’ glimmer mist concoction, I might try it this weekend on some white book board and see what results I get.  Yes!  Another board book. =)  We’ll see…I might end up making something else.

Stuff:  board book – Creative Imaginations; patterned paper – Basic Grey; ink and ribbon – Stampin’ Up!; paint – Making Memories; eyelets – We R Memory Keepers; Perfect Pearls; Grungeboard

  7. Wow, this is such a complex book with all the textures and colors. I love what you did with the Grungeboard! I am dying to try this stuff, but they don’t carry it at our local LSS and I’ve not had a chance to check the other stores in our area. Where do you get yours? You’ve done a wonderful job with this!
