Worn Book Cover - Documented.

Happy Friday!!
I've got a just because piece of creating to share with you today, this one was made just for me. With saying that you can already guess that it is going to be full of lots of Tim Holtz yumminess!
I fell in love with the Tim Holtz Worn Covers when they were first released, and have been creating with one of my favourite versions - Composition.
I picked out a few more of my favourites - Salvage stickers, Alpha Parts, Idea-ology and Ephemera, layered them all together, added in a little bit of distress ink in Black soot and walnut stain - Of course! and not forgetting a little Antique Linen Distress paint.. and I was done..

and of course I can't not show you a couple of close ups..

The Details:
Base: Worn Book Cover - Composition
Idea-ology -
Curio Knobs, Adornments - Nature, Ephemera -Thrift Shop, Alpha Parts - Framed, Salvage Stickers- Lost and Found, Film Strip Ribbon, Mini Corners
Paints & Inks:
