ATC Star Book

With all the ATC swaps I have been participating in lately, I decided it was time to create a new Star Book to store my little treasures in.  During the summer I attended CKC in Houston, hoping that I could audit a couple of classes and learn some new techniques while I recovered from arm surgery.  Well, let me tell you, I was introduced to a wonderful new company called Gecko Galz.  Leanne, the owner, specializes in vintage digital ephemera that is breathtaking.  She is sooo sweet and talented.  The class I attended was for a little tag book entitled Cowgirl Divas.  Anyway, I have since purchased tons of her sheets for my little ATC addiction.  So, it was only natural that when I wanted to make a Star Book of for my ATCs I headed over to her online shop.  Below is what I created, now not all of the photos are from Gecko Galz, but with the theme I had in mind, I had trouble finding a lot of the pictures anywhere.


 Can you guess the names of all the famous "Divas" I have included. The Image on the front of the book is from Gecko Galz (Haute Couture Collection).   The Distressed leather technique was one Leanne taught us in Houston.  I also used up some left over paper from the Cowgirl Diva's class for this book.
These photos were some I found online.

 Again, I had to find these diva's online
 The Diva on the right was from Gecko Galz (Frankly Scarlett Collection)




back cover, again embossed and distressed
The Star Book tied in the open position for displaying your ATCs.  

Hope you enjoyed looking at my Star Book,
