I made this for my swap partner, Kristine. I joined a swap on My Scraproom a NING site.
I started by drawing my gates and cutting them out in paper so I could see if they would work or not.
I covered them in brown paper and mod podge and then rubbed in some Patina Gilding Wax by Creative Expressions.
I wrapped flowers around the gates and backed each one with Paper and a pocket with punched detail.
I made my pages from cardstock and folded them into a pocket and punched holes at the end for binding. I intended to use ribbon and beads but used the rings to hold it all together while I added everything to the pages.
Some close up detail and more pictures to follow.
