Steampunk Doll/ Christmas gifts

How is everyone today? This has been one busy Thanksgiving holiday for me. I took these images with me to my Mom's for Thanksgiving and worked on this after dinner. I made 2 journal books for a friend that requested them as Christmas gifts for her family. I made her 3 recipe books last year that some of you may remember if you followed my blog last year HERE.
I used one of the new Sweet Pea Images by artist Meredith Dillman called Steampunk Doll ( Sheet #2/ Plate #87) and she comes with another gorgeous image that I used on this Steampunk card HERE earlier.
I used some digital Steampunk paper from Creative Victorian Designs. The photo gears are also from Creative Victorian Designs. They are made for Digial Scrapbooking, but I printed them out on white CS and cut them out to use as embellishments on my journal books. I also used some Tim Holtz Grungeboard that I inked up to look like old and vintage.

I also covered all the images with Ranger Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy to give them even more vintage look and feel.
Here is the second on I made. I added some gold metal border strips and used my Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers Alterations die by Sizzix.

Here you can see all the tiny cracks in the clear paint.

And here is my last creation using the same image. I created this card for one of my good friends for her birthday. She fell in love this image as soon as she saw it.

Not only did I cover the image in Clear Crackle paint, I also covered the DP in it too.
Here you can see the clear crackle paint even better.

Well I am off to finish putting up my Christams Tree and get ready for the new Sweet November previews tomorrow. Yes I get to help Amy Young with her new Sweet November previews. Yay!! I am so excited. Previews will start tomorrow Nov. 29.
