Graphic 45 Midnight Masquerade art or travel journal

I just finished making this stunning art or travel journal yesterday.  It took me about a week to make this journal from an old book.  First I thinned out the pages from the book and then I glued 4 pages together to make a thicker substrate for the gesso and then the metallic paints.  I made tip out pages, envelops and tags, a small secret book from the decorator paper.g45 midnight masquade 1

The cover is a work of art.  I made the wings, clock and key from paper clay and painted them with metallic paints. I added raspberry rhinestones, Swarovski crystals and pearl buttons to the cover.  There is a metal clock on top of the clay clock.  I fussy cut a lady from the Graphic 45 paper and added lots of crystals to her dress.  I sealed everything with varnish and covered the spine of the book with purple decorator tape.  And I dusted the entire cover in diamond dust.g45 midnight masquade

 

It is 7.5 x 5 inches and 3 inches thick.  It closes with white satin ribbons so you can expand it when you put your photos and journaling into it.  I feel like it is the best work I have done so far.g45 midnight masquade 2
