Fat book swap

I am in a fat book swap on uks at the moment and have just completed one page (out of 8). I have another almost complete, it just needs a little something more. A couple more are waiting for their backgrounds to dry before I can carry on with them. There are a couple which are ideas I am trying to work out how to realise and a couple for which I am still waiting and hoping for inspiration to strike.

This one was on the theme of "purple" and is a piece of aluminium foil embossed with the shape of a grungeboard swirl. I attatched it to some mount board then painted it with acrylic paint and some perfect pearls before sanding it to reveal the silver swirl. Sadly the photo does not show the pearlecent finish very well, in real life it has a lovely shimmer.
