Chunky Book Swap - Vintage Ladies

Nine fabulous ladies from an online group joined in a themed chunky book swap. A few were "chunky virgins" but each did a beautiful job on their pieces!

Our theme was Vintage Women and to work on a 4x4" coaster. All pieces and covers came to me for binding. I used the fabulous Bind-it-all machine.
Shown above is my books cover, and my page contribution. I printed the image on my inkjet printer, trimmed her out and dipped her in beeswax. The background is acrylic paint, stamped with a flourish and painted with gold Radient Rain with a brush. The 'curtain' is a lyra pencil rubbed on a texture plate and trimed out. I stamped a clock, and glued a clear pebble over it.
