I'm back! Mini Album - Bit of Grunge and image thanks to The graphic fairy

Sorry I have not been on the Blog for quite some time.  But I am back and enjoying catching up with what everyone is doing.
Thought I would just show you my Mini Album - see what people think - am in need of a bit of love at the moment. It means a lot to me to have your comments.
Thank you for visiting -  my crafty friends. I have a new blog too if anyone likes jewellery making - its called Earth Angel -   find me at:      Thanks go to The Graphics Fairy for birdcage and girl image. I will be happy to answer any questions about what I have used etc. Much love, Sharon xxx                    

Here is a quick peek at my mini album - it needs filling with more pages now....

This is how I did the front cover:
One coat of Gesso
Then acrylic paint and starburst
Then I made a crackle glaze using PVA glue for the start of my texture.
I stamped the bride and the swirls pattern, then embossed the swirls with gold.
I added some netting from a supermarket fruit package - and sprayed with cosmic shimmer
Then I added real rose petals which had been dried, sprayed with cosmic shimmer and glittered.

What a load of fun I had getting really messy! Oh I almost forgot - I cut the middle out of a vintage lace doily that I got from a charity shop!

I will be entering this project in the STAMP MAN CHALLENGE: TEXTURE
