A small book made with Bind it all. I used both Perfect Pearls and gold leaf on the stamped image.
I was asked to do an article in Ett trykk, which is Norways leading stamping magazine. The article was about the use of metal leaf. I was published on eleven pages with my cards and step-by-step instructions on how to work with gold leaf in the April issue. I tried to show how to use it on different things, like home decor, cards, glass, stones etc. The article is only found in Ett trykk. You might though, find it inspiring to visit their blog and their very talented designers. You will find their blog here.
Here are some of the things I made for the article.
Jeg ble spurt av redaksjonen i Ett trykk om å lage en artikkel om bruk av bladgull. Jeg ble publisert i April nummeret av magasinet over elleve sider med steg-for-steg instruksjoner om hvordan man kan bruke bladgull på hjemme dekor, stener, glass, kort osv.
Artikkelen er å finne i April nummeret av Ett trykk. Ellers vil jeg henvise deg til å ta en titt på Ett Trykks blog og hva de utrolig talentfulle designerne deres lager. Det er mye der som er til inspirasjon og glede.
Du finner her en del av de tingene jeg brukte bladgull på.

This spells "Happiness" and are just small black decor stones. I punched out the letters on a double sided glue paper and glued them on the stone and covered the other side with silver leaf. A very easy way to make a difference on the table.
Variegated gold leaft togheter with a stamp can make a huge difference.
This is a heart of glass that is decorated with gold leaf, a old newspaper, alcohol inks and fibres.
