The outside covers were made with a technique demonstrated by Liesbeth Fidder at Paper Artsy. I mounted this "weathered wood" onto chipboard covered with scrapbooking paper. The flower is Sizzix Gulian die (658529).
The book was bound using this this method by Candace Scarborough. I reinforced with some ruler printed ribbon, some hand printed paper, and washi tape.
Inside are double-sided pages which were covered with various mixed media techniques, using stamps by Lynne Perella and others, and various die cuts .
The graceful curved edges are accomplished with Elizabeth Craft Designs "Agatha Edges" die.
The other edges are made using Tim Holtz On the Edge dies (Clustered Stars, Butterflight, and Distressed Doily).
Here are some detailed shots.
The handle is clear packaging, painted with metallic alcohol inks, then cut and embossed with Sizzix Antique Handles die/embossing folder set (658462).
The butterfly was stamped with StaysOn ink onto Wendy Vecchi's Clearly for Art, fussy cut and shaped by heating with a heat tool. You can see Vivian Keh's tutorial for the background here .
This page was embossed with Spellbinders Embossibilities folder Roman Romance (E3D-010) and then washed with layers of dilute watercolor. The pearl accents are Liquid Pearls.
The latch was made using a Sizzix label die, using painted card that was also stamped with script and covered with matte medium in several coats to make (and keep) it pliable. It secures with a small magnet.
The back cover is similar to the front. Thanks for visiting!
