Lutradur book with Lesley Riley

I had the good fortune to take a class with Lesley Riley this weekend, where she taught her Lutradur Mini Book. We used this durable material to make a charming book and incorporated a number of techniques, including ink jet transfer and even melting with the Creative Textile Tool. What fun! I used some goodies from the store's ephemera packs to embellish some of my pages. Below are images of my finished book.
We melted the page on the right with a heat gun.
We used embossing powder on the right-hand page ... gorgeous!
We used Transfer Artist Paper ( to iron-on the background image on the right-hand page.
On the right page we melted the flowers, cut out the leaf shapes and created the scalloped edging with the Creative Textile Tool.


  1. Oh this is glorious!! What a great way to explore this "new" old substrate. I love all of the colors and doodling that you added! To have a FINISHED project must be such a great feeling!! The edging on the last page is sooo cute!!
    Love it!
    Thanks soooo much for sharing!!

  2. How exciting! Lesley is such a great teacher! I was sorry to miss out we had just returned from FL, hoping she makes a return visit to Angela's real soon! Nice to see you blogging!
