Here's the second side of that pocket
This side of the pocket was painted with Broken China Distress Stain, dabbed with gold paint and trimmed with more washi tape and ribbon. I really liked the idea of a corrugated cardboard pyramid rubbed with gold paint and the sphynx in front. Someone else before me had used very fine sandpaper for their sand - great idea. My scarab beetle was actually finished off with a gold coin and some shiny beads but that was last minute after I'd taken these pics. I had to get it wrapped up to send to Australia in the morning for the next part of its journey.
Thanks for joining me today and if you've never altered a book before, I'd certainly recommend it. Especially joining in a round robin - its really inspiring to see other people's work. Hope everyone is having a great Sunday and better weather than we have here in NE England where its been thick fog all day. Nice and warm by the log fire though. Margie x
PS My son sent me a Mother's Day message from Kenya today where he's been taking part in a charity climb of Mt Kenya to help raise funds for a village his firm is supporting. I'm so proud of him I could burst.
