Glimmer Mist and Gesso!

Recently I took a GREAT class at my LSS Scrappy Chic.  It was taught by Jen Starr.  It was a fantastic learning experience and it was a pleasure meeting her!  If you get an opportunity to take one of her classes you defiantly should.
B Gatebook
She showed us how to make this gatebook.  We used lots of glimmer mist and gesso…we all had very inky fingers, it was a blast!
Here are some photos of the process, all the paper was cut to size but we misted EVERYTHING!

This is going to make an excellent gift…but for who??  I am excited to see what is will look like with pictures and journaling!!
Look for my own version of this gatebook in the near future.  Maybe I’ll do a tutorial too.  ;)
