Vintage Wooden Book

Hi Friends,
Sure hope your enjoying this beautiful weather, atleast it's
beautiful here in NE Ohio. Humid but still great.

I have a different type project to share with you today.
I found this great unfinished wooden book at Hobby Lobby.
The spine part of the book is a drawer. How neat is that!

As I said the wooden book is from Hobby Lobby. The fabulous
 paper is, "Once upon a time"DCWV at JoAnne's. I used glossy
white CS, for the image which my dear friend Kris gave me (Thanks Kris!!)
I used alot of Tim Holtz's products listed here:
Grunge Board, Alterations Dies, Elegant Flourishes,
 Tattered Florals,Caged Bird, Distress Stickles,
Findings, Distress Inks, Stamps from Stampers Anonymous.
 Ribbon from S.U. and Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels.
 Can you tell I am hooked on Tim Holtz products LOL.
 I think they are fabulous!!!!!
I sprayed the box first with Glimmer Mist then used watered
 down Distress Ink refill and painted the box then wiped it off
as you would stain and Wow it turned out great, it's 
 hard to see how sparkly and pretty it is in the
 pictures but as usual IRL its better! 

I truly loved making this project. Infact I purchased several
more types of wooden pieces to play with so in the future 
I will be sharing those as I get them done.
Hope this has inspired you to step out of your comfort
zone and try something different.

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!!!!
