Crackle - Decorated ring binder - Brenda

Di has a fabulous selection of Ring Binders in stock of different sizes and I'm sharing the shabby vintage pink one you can see in the photo below.

Paint the binder in a vintage mix of pink both inside and out using the DecoArt Premium Acrylics.

Glue some tissue wrap on the front and back panels and when dry dip them in watery titanium white, titan buff and primary magenta several times drying between each dip.
Mix a dirty glaze using premium matte medium, burnt umber and dark grey together with some water and paint it all over.

Make the oval vintage lady embellishment by applying some titan buff acrylic paint to a craft mat and squidge the oval and rectangle chipboard shapes to get a bit of texture to it. Stamp them with one of Andy's IA Tech Trauma texture stamps.
Ink the edges of the photograph with brown distress ink, adhere it to the oval and then add a layer of clear crackle glaze. When dry I rubbed in some white and brown antiquing cream. Repeat with the label and use Tim Holtz label letters to make your word.

Add a magnet beneath the flap to keep the binder closed when not in use.

Now it is ready to be filled with journal pages, stencils, envelopes for collecting things together or whatever takes your fancy.

This is another of Di's creations that would make a fabulous gift for someone.

Until next time.
