Handbag Booklets

These are two booklets that I made to give as presents for some ladies I know. I put these here to show how I got the clean edges on my gold leaf stripe. I used on the booklet with the flower casting a mask and spray tacky glue, this way the edge is defined and it is easy to brush away the extra leaf. For the heart casting booklet I used a jumbo tip ZIG 2 way glue pen, let it dry then leafed. This was easier and gave a cleaner edge. This is what I will use in the future. I still have to seal the gold leaf or otherwise I have read it will tarnish.
