Chunky Fatbook Swap UKScrappers

Over on UKScrappers, Kitty Crafts is running a chunky fat book swap.  A fat book is a small 4"x4" chunky board like book.  FAT means very chunky.  The base of each page is mount board.   I decided to try my hand at some hot glue gun designs.  I definitely need to practise a bit more, but happy with the outcome and  'chunkiness'.

The base is mount board.  I used the hot glue gun to  make scribble circles, then layered with Gesso, blue and purple acrylic paint and treasure gold wax.  The large stars are mount board collaged with copies of music paper, then covered with gesso and gold paint.  A small sequin star was then attached.  Old pieces of wire were twisted to make rough swirls and then added around the main star.

Thanks for looking
