Altered Book~Marion Smith Designs "Nirvana"

Last week Marion asked us the Design Team to challenge us to create an Altered Book!!! You can see the blog post here...
Here is my take on the Altered Book Challenge...

I used (Nirvana) Marion's new paper collection....
Here are some pics of the altered  book...hope you enjoy...
I first started painting the book with gesso..
glued tissue paper (wrinkled) down on the whole book.
Then started dripping Distress re-inker Pumice Stone all over the cover...
using a very wet paint brush helps the ink to run.
Once dried I started using some of my fav glimmer mist
 by Tattered Graphite and Raven.
sealing with Claudine Hellmuth Studio
Multi-medium matte gel.
don't forget to aged the book pages as well...
Altered Cover
I took a few papers of the Nirvana collection and ran them through
an embossing folder.
Tore some pieces and inked the edges...glue them down.
Took some stucco/gesso mixture added some texture
with a Prima mask-damask.
splatted with more glimmer mist.
Went into my stash and found bits and pieces...
Petaloo flowers, Tim Holtz metal flowers and gear die cuts,
 Dusty Attics chipboard.
Cut out piece of the Nirvana papers to use as
 handmade chipboard embellishments.
Tim Holtz grungeboard letters...colored with glimmer mist..
white paint..
more close ups...
Art will see more pages soon to come....

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop over to the MSD-DT Blog!!! to see more
amazing talent..hugs,
Peggy Lee
