Hello everyone, I can't tell you how excited I was to get my book cover to play with - it was straight out the packaging and on my desk ready for layers of paint and ink! I used the Geometric design cover and started off by priming it with white Gesso, I also used the Tando Distorted Diamonds mask with some texture paste to add more dimension. Next I added some flowers and a butterfly and then went to work misting. I did each layer a slightly different colour, and experimented with stamping on the middle layer and liquid pearls, then on the top layer I went with purple which I dripped water on and then wound string around. It was so much fun to make. I repeated the techniques on both the back and front cover.
Here is a close up of the texture paste and flowers - they were all sorts of colours but because I bathed the book in mist it didn't really matter.
I fastened my book with jump rings so I could add more pages, and have started by making a few different pocket pages, just roughly stitching around the edges of them.
