Hi to you all 
we have had a lovely weekend with family 
to celibate our Wedding Anniversary of 29 years 
cant believe how quick the time has flown past 
It has been  made nice as both our children have been home with us for the weekend 
here is one more book folding the last for a bit 


I have use wax rub on's to the frame and varnish glue to seal 
I have used acrylic paint gold to paint the back of the frame 
I have used a old book and after folding have inked it with yellow and green 
I have used a glue gun to stick ti the back of the frame
I have added some butterfly's  with some small pearls in the middle 
here is some more views of the frame 

I would like to enter this project into some challenges 

( I have altered my frame with wax inks )
old book 

Thanks for taking the time to look 
happy crafting to all

Happy Anniversary Rachel - glad you had a great weekend! This is lovely - I've not seen book folding framed like this before - it really works, and the dimensional butterflies are a perfect finishing touch. Thanks for sharing with us at Rhedd's Creative Spirit ~ Steffi :o) xx
