and was able to recycle a piece of an old top
I painted the lace gold, and layered a couple of the stencils
It was fun to bring out a feather stamp carved by me and to stamp both directly on the background and to create a feather on card that had been painted purple, and was then cut out
I utilised machine stitching to anchor some of the feathers and the lace, as well as for decorative additions to the page

I'm feeling so glad that I committed to Life Book this year - I'm pretty much keeping up with the main projects, and have only missed a couple of mini lessons cos they didn't appeal to me at the time (maybe later). So far I have found other life bookers to be a hugely supportive group, the main lessons are jam packed full of information (excellent value for what we've paid) and most of what I've seen so far I actually want to make ;-) It's not too late to join us!
You can see all my posts about Life Book HERE and I've created a Flickr album for all my Life Book projects HERE.
