Hello everyone!  
Today I want to share this project with you all.  
Inspiration comes easy when using laser wood embellishments from 
I'm using their heart shapes and gears throughout the project.  

 I applied gesso to a paper mache book as well as all the embellishments I planned to use. 
Then I used white embossing paste using three different stencils.

Everything was glued into place.  I overlapped the hearts in this picture above on the lower left.

I tore strips of paper with gears on it from Tattered Tales and glued them to the sides of the book using Mod Podge.

First I began to cover the spine of the book with words from a dictionary then I changed my mind about it and instead, I cut strips of aluminum cabinet paper.

I used my glimmer mists on the book, keeping clear of the sides.

Used my Silks (spicy tomato) to deepen some of the red areas that I had misted.  To deepen the blue/green areas I used acrylic paint, classic teal.

After drying drying, I took my Inka Golds, silver and lava red and blended it around the sides of the the book using my finger.  

There's another ULD gear behind the anger and below the red pot.

The "XO" above is a ULD wood embellishment.

In the above photo you can see another heart with the arrow laying on it and a smaller one near the buckle.

After things got completely dry, I went over some areas with the silver Inka Gold metallic rub for highlights. 

I then added some metal embellishments.

(Aleen's tacky glue was also used on some embellishments.)
Once again I'd like to thank you for your visit.
