Acrylic Book for the
Prima Build-A-Book Contest
Above you will see the acrylic book that I will be entering into the Prima Build-A-Book contest. There is a plethora of styles to choose from at Prima. I chose the most Victorian ones. I put 2 designs together. The cover is done by mounting a crystal Christmas Tree ornament. There is a backing on it for color and the book page itself is a gorgeous Victorian cut. The other pages have a complementary Victorian edging on each of them. Just a beautiful book and I thoroughly enjoyed making this book.
Note: Only Prima Build-A-Book clear albums are allowed for this contest. Each book will be judged on creative use of art mediums/product on the BAB's clear surface, design composition, craftsmanship, and originality of project.
Wish me luck and I hope to enter another album also. Thanks for your time and try something new today. Happy scrappin'.

Good luck! This card is gorgeous. I saw the front and thought, WOW! It almost looks like you have prisms on the snowflake. I don't know if that's what you were going for, but prisms are always great in my book!
