Tree of Life Tomes

Marina Wilson, a favorite former ButterBeeScraps Design Team Member is back and she doesn’t disappoint! She’s brought a very unique project to share with us, the Tree of Life Tomes, not one, but two.

These journals are fashioned with faux leather and feature a sculptured tree on the cover and a ribbed spine. She has a very creative closure using a drawer pull on one of the tomes. The other tome has a wonderful antique feel with gilded pages and altered metal filigrees.

And…there’s a bonus! Marina has an assistant for this project share, her darling little girl – she is definitely Mommy’s Little Helper. Hop on over to Marina’s YouTube channel for the full reveal. 

Marina mentioned that she altered the metal embellishments and here is her tutorial showing five ways to alter metal.
