~Working with Lutradur~

This is a project I did with Lutradur that Rebecca(from Fiskateers) sent me
Man, I was so intimidated at first BUT now I LOVE it!
It was so cool to paint and to embellish.
I used my Fiskars punches on it, I painted it, I printed on it, I used Rub-ons on it.
This cover I printed with my photoshop program and regular printer,
then I trimmed it with my Fiskars rotary trimmer,
then I stitched it on with my sewing machine.

This page, I placed cardstock thickness paper on the back of the cover to make it stiff.
and added pages. The flower is made from painted Lutradur as well.
I used my two Fiskars Squeeze punches and a simple brad.

Now this page is from Lutradur as well.
I used 3 colors to paint it.
Champagne, brown, and gold.
I used the Fiskars Border punch (scalloped) for the edges throughout the album.

And this back page is Lutradur with a Rub-on, very simple,
I used my Fiskars corner rounder squeeze punch for the corners
Way out of my comfort zone but LOVED how it turned out.
I do with I had more ribbon though for the rings, I will tinker with that later.
OHHH and Fiskateers is havign a chat with...
