I am back with my third project for Ali-Craft DT.
Continuing with the theme of items you may use on a day to day basis, I have made a book mark and a Altered giant peg, which you can use to hold a special Photograph or a note for some one.
So here they are.............................
The giant peg, was given a good coating of Gesso, before I added a layer of Espresso Paint dabber. I left it to dry then trimmed some of the Prima paper to fit the front and back, gave them a good edging with Antique Linen Distress Ink and stamped a few of the small Butterflies in Potting Soil Archival ink.

The Bookmark started life as a giant paper clip and a huge bottle cap!
I gave the bottle cap a coat of Paint Dabber in Espresso left to dry, then cut a circle from some scraps to fit on the inside and edged once again in Antique Linen DI. Molded a butterfly with some Air dry clay; once dry painted and gilded with Treasure Gold (Sorry I had to get use some in my projects lol). Adhered the Butterfly to the centre of the bottle cap. Then using a strong glue (Bostik) I then attached the Bottle Cap to the Paper Clip.
