Paris Leaky Shed Board Book

What an AWESOME MONTH of inspiration from both the Altered Pages and Leaky Shed Studio Design Teams! Just a few more days left of art.  Be sure to stop by each and comment! 

Working in my Leaky Shed Bracket Book 
I created a Flight In Paris!

This is the technique I use to cover odd shaped pages.  The Bracket book is 6X6.  I used 6x6 sheet from the Glitz Paper Pad.  First, apply adhesive to one side of the chipboard, the lay it on the paper carefully centering it.  

Gently cut away excess paper.  Use an emery board (or sand paper if you prefer) to sand the edges with paper side up use strokes in a downward motion.   

With a file, poke holes where the ring holes are, then file down the paper to create nice round holes. 

Now repeat the process on the other side of the page.  Be sure to do both sides before you add any embellishments as it is difficult to work with the page once one side is finished. 

After the paper is on the page, edge with Delicata Golden Glitz. Cut the Eiffel Tower and Butterfly postcard from collage sheets Altered Pages, adhere to the page. Paint the Leaky Shed Paris chipboard with Art Anthology Acrylic and spritz with Shimmer Mist let dry and adhere to the page.

Add finishing embellishments:Petaloo FlowersGlitz Rhinestones and Ribbon!
