A book for creative thoughts

Last week at "Hot Metal Mamas" we made a small book, covering the front and back covers with embossed art metal. We could choose any colored metal and any molds and wheels. We also used stamps and debossed our own handwriting on the metal. I chose the cream metal and afterwards wished I'd used a darker metal to better showcase the embossing.

Anyway, it's finished - here's the front

and back:

I covered the backs of the covers with a coordinating script paper and cut watercolor paper pages for the book itself. I did this so I can use this little book as an art journal and the pages will stand up to more media. It's all held together with black grosgrain ribbon.

It was a relatively quick and fun project.
