Bound in Blue

At the moment all of my acrylic stamps are stored in a drawer and it is a bit frustrating finding the one that I want.  I bought this A5 binder from Paperchase for £3 to store them in.

It was just begging to be altered/decorated.

This is the backing paper I created using Faded jeans, Broken china, Shabby shutters and black soot.  I also used Black embossing powder and clear iridescent embossing powder for sparkle.  I had a lot of fun creating this.

The frame is made from grunge paper which I painted with crackle paint and then inked with faded jeans, Tea dye and vintage photo before coating with more clear iridescent embossing powder to give this sparkly effect.

You really need to click on this image to see the details.  There are close up pictures of the different areas here

I will be entering my binder in the following challenges.
