Autumn Recipes Book (by Magda)

Hello everybody !
I dedicate this first post of June to all the friends who like writing a recipe book.

Step by step

1. Cut one piece of white heavy cardstock  25,5 x 15,5 cm and a second piece 25,2 x 15,2 cm
2. Colour one side of the first piece with a wash of Brush using autumn colours. This side will be the
    cover of the book.
3. On the front page stencil "Autumn" from Chocolate Baroque stencil Seasonal Journey in a reddish
4. Blend lightly the inside pages with Distress Inkpad  Brushed Corduroy and Old Paper
5. Add more colour through a stencil leaving some areas to write your recipes, and
    outline scribbling these areas.
6. Stamp on a white  cardstock  several images with Archival Jet Black   You will find the images you
    like in Mellow Fruitfulness  and Autumn Poppy stamp sheets
7. Colour with Faber Castell Art Grip Aquarelle Pencils all the images and cut the edges.
8. Glue every single piece with Inkssentials Glue n Seal on each page.
9. Assemble the book and bind it with a rope.

Autunm Tag 

"Mushroom House " is really a nice funny new stamp with a the right size for a Tag.
I used for it :  Distress Inkpad for the background and on the stencil,  Archival Jet Black Faber Castell Art Grip Aquarelle Pencils ,  a stencil,  Inkssentials Glue n Seal,  and Stickles. The sentiment is in the new stamp "The Toadstool Garden" stamp 

Thank you for passing by.
