Fashionable Femmes!

Glue books are a lot of fun to create! 
is be a perfect book to make one!
I am creating a book that is some where between a glue book and a lot of mini collages.   

The Arched Door Blank Board Book is the base for my "Fashionable Femmes" book.  During May I will be sharing it as I create pages in it!

First, ink the edges of the book with Tsukineko StazOn Midi Spiced Chai.  Cut the pattern paper to fit the front of the book and ink edges. Adhere pattern paper to the book. 

Using the inkjet, print the Altered Pages Collage Sheet ATC Decorative Boarders and Architecture on Craft Attitude™ printable film. Layer one of the  ATC Decorative Boarders over the image of woman from  Color Pink ATC's sing glue stick on the printed side of the film. Cut the column for the Archticture collage sheet.  Attach images to book cover.

Add flowers. "Fashionable Femmes" is stamped directly on the book, Airmail is stamed with Tsukineko StazOn Midi Spiced Chai on cardstock stamps.
To finish the cover spritz with Imagine Crafts irRESISTible Bronze, you will love this product. It adds a bit of texture to the surface.  If you look closely you can see the texture on the cover of the book.

  1. Very pretty book cover. I'm lokking forward to seeing the rest of the pages.

  2. What a lovely glue book! I love the colors and images you used soft and dreamy!
    TFS Lyneen!!

  3. so pretty, look forward to seeing what else you do with it!

    I'm not familiar with the term "glue book" - what is it?

  4. Such a lovely layout, perfectly colored and embellished!

  5. I haven't made a glue book in quite a while. I love how you've begun yours, and I love the shape of the book. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the book develops. Will you stay to a certain theme or color palette or will each page/2 pages be unique? I'm inspired now to choose one of my blank books and start my own glue book for spring. Thanks for the inspiration! Anne, yourmainestamper

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
