Hello!  This week we are looking at BOOK COVERS.  Tando sell a wide variety of these for you to decorate/alter.  There are 2 different sized kits from Neil Walker, which include a front, back and a spine as well as extra pieces for the front!  We also have Word Books where you can choose any word you would like up to 7 letters.  There are our own RING BINDERS, complete with board pages, as well as a selection of MINI BOOKS in different designs ( the Christmas one is a favourite!)  Yes...lots to choose from!!!!

I have chosen to use one of Neil's designs - a 6x6 kit called RANDOM 3.

The bases have been gesso'd then sprayed with Media Misters (Orange, Primary Yellow, Primary Cyan & Primary Magenta) to create a really bright background.  The layered piece has been painted with Media Fluids (Primary Magenta).  Isn't there a lovely sheen??? And so vibrant!!!!

Instead of using the spine provided I have bound mine with a Bind-It-All using black rings to match the black car I used for the pages.  For the letters I sprayed some thin card the same as the backgrounds and stamped & embossed the letters before cutting out and applying.

If you like books and fancy giving one a makeover or making one from scratch then please join in with us.  You will find a link at the top of the blog page for more info about how to win a prize!

Thank you so much for looking, Take care, Karen x
