BIA Note Book - Mermaid Goddess

If you click on the image you get a better idea of the 'wet' looking texture. Any white spots are reflections of the light - as the embossing is really lovely and shiny.



I have spent all day making some BIA note books. In fact I have been busy doing quite a few things behind the scenes - but as they are presents I can't risk posting them on here.

The photo above is of one I made earlier - and the photo below is the same notebook which I 'tweaked' a bit today.



This took me hours to make - but I am quite pleased with how it turned out in the end.

The imaged is stamped and embossed - and in 'the hand' its a great texture and looks lovely with a 'wet' look to it all. Took me so long to cut, make, and decorate the covers. I tied up the threads twice then added the fish bone and hand made with love silver charms. I spent a lot of time trying to create an initial for it - but after three aborted attempts I gave up and put the silver charms on.

As it will be a present and it's going in a box - it qualifies for this week's challenge in One Powerful Hour.

oh Lottie...this is fabulous! I can see what you mean about the "wet Look" in the close up...this would be stunning in person...not that it isn't online! The fibers and charms are the perfect addition...I know whoever is receiving this lovely notebook is going to love it!

Thanks for taking the challenge!

I love the effect of the fibres carrying the sea/seaweed theme through.
