As I posted last week, I had 2 LOVE Lottery pieces to finish. This is the 2nd!! It is an altered, LOVE 6 panel accordion style brown paper book. You can buy them from Oriental Trading. Each album has six 5" x 5" panels.
I mixed up a custom paint made from Red Metallic Folk ART and Wicker White paint for the base coat, both sides and let it dry.
I took 3 sea sponges, added in some red metallic, silver metallic, and lighter pink and sponged painted a top coat onto the book and again, let dry.

To embellish the book I cut LOVE phrases from this sheet of scrapbook paper from DCWV, Valentines Words and then layered them and ran them through the Xyron Sticker Maker.
All other images were cut with my WONDERFUL new Cricut Cartridge, "Love Struck." I knew I would like this, but it is WAY better than I imagined!! :) I LOVE everything it can cut!!
Some of the hearts were stamped with a Versamark pad, some were glittered. I used 2 colors of vintage ric-rac. The images were from a friend.
Hope you enjoy the journey through my book of LOVE.
