This past week the Viva Las Vegastamps! design team partnered with Gauche Alchemy. We have a wonderful collection of projects using products from both companies!
My project was a book titled EYE ON FASHION of the PAST. 

Only the front cover was used to in the daily post. I am here today sharing the rest of the book.
The base is a 5 Ring Kaiser Craft Scrapbook that was first painted brown. After the paint dried, all pages were covered with vintage papers then inked using Color Box Fluid Chalk Ink Pad - Rouge and Punchinello as a stencil. Papers were trimmed then all edges were sanded. On the cover VLVS! Fifties Eye Cat Glasses and Lady with Flowered Top

Note: All stamped images in this project are from VLVS! They were stamped on sewing tissue, heat embossed with VLVS! High Gloss Embossing Powder and tinted with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

Gauche Alchemy Supplies include: Vintage Papers including sheet music, yellow game piece as an eye glass on front , sequins, fabric cut into strips used with ribbons, Punchinello as a stencil with ink, lace black and purple, tag, Button, Bottle Cap and Gold Beads. Other supplies acrylic paint, Sakura Crystal Lacquer, Color Box Chalk Rouge and ribbon.

Collage papers, inked using punchinella as a stencil for coverage of the background. Added pieces of doilies, colored some of the images on the collage papers with Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

Game piece over the eye on the cover... "EYE" on fashion of the past!EYE ON FASHION of the PAST.

The back of the book has been stamped with VLVS! Beautiful Women. Embellished with flower from the black lace, trim cut from the purple lace.

To finish the project add a lot of ribbon/fabric to the rings. On this book there is combination of both.

Hope you enjoyed my book and you are inspired to collage!
