Book covers - possibly!

Hello to all of my followers, hope your week is going well.  I have a warning to all those who use a heat gun - watch out for your carpets!  I did something extremely silly yesterday, I gave my picture a blast with my heat tool and melted the carpet.  Every time I look at it I feel ashamed.  Being the carpet is in the bathroom of our caravan I get to feel ashamed a lot!  It put me off crafting for the rest of the day.  There were lots of things I could have and should have done - but I didn't. :(

Today I have been extra careful.  I have been making covers for a Junk album and have used layers of book pages, napkins etc to make the covers thicker.  I didn't have any thick cardboard in the caravan so I have building up the layers and letting them dry.  here are the finished pictures.  I decided the first one was a bit dark so I made the second lighter and I like it much better.  Trouble is there is quite a difference and I am wondering if I should make another one, does it matter do you think?  You don't get to see them side by side after all.

I have entered both pictures in the Twisted Thursday challenge at the Outlawz.  Twisted Thursday Challenge is always anything goes and this week the twist is also anything goes.  There are lots of challenges over at The Outlawz so pop over and see what there is.

These are beautiful. Rather than using them as front and back covers, why not use them both as front covers and make something plain, but coordinating to go with each. Then you will have two beautiful books.
