Masculine Chunky Book, and last DT works

I have been very busy since returning from vacation. But I always have to make time for art. This is my first page of the Maculine Chunky Book swap I am in. I didn't really like any of the collage sheets I have for this project. So I am returning to the old family photos I got from Lyles uncle. This page has a photo of Lyles grandfather. I started out with the Textured Metallics tech from the April 06 issue of Technique Junkies. I have NO IDEA if grandpa was a Republican, but I had the paper and the antique copper letter. I really like how this page came out!
As of Sept. 1 there will be a new design team at Fire Cracker Designs by Pamela. If you would like to try to be on the next team check out the requirements
So this is my last month on the team, and here are a few of my last projects. I made a few cards, but I also HAD to make a little book! I just couldn't help myself.
This one uses a tech that I created. I call it Not So Faux Oil Painting. You can check it out on Pamelas blog
Black and White cards are just so elegant, aren't they. I am very pleased with this card.

And here is the little book! These are SO MUCH FUN!!! I just love making these books. I took all my books with me when we went back home. My family really liked them. I had to give some away as gifts. I actually left one for my aunt and uncle and didn't tell them. They noticed it on top of their curio cabinet after we left. When I got home there was a very nice thank you message from them on my voice mail.
For the pages of this book I used the Faux Handmade Paper tech from the recent issue of Technique Junkies. I really like this tech, even though it is so messy. I don't mind all the paint on my fingers at all.
