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 Angels...in Graphite and Raven.
sealing with Claudine Hellmuth Studio
Multi-medium matte gel.
don't forget to aged the book pages as well...
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..
more close ups...
Art Journal...you will see more pages soon to come....
