Completed Book Cover

This is for "The Book Of Days" project re:last post,enjoyed myself today slapping paint about again,I layered up using Gesso first after sanding the shine off my book,using Acrylic paint next, after that I applied strips and pieces of paper using Mod Podge to fix,the Butterfly was a problem,I used Effy Wilds method,stamping on tissue then tearing and sticking down,I didnt like the effect as the colours changed,used a Sharpie pen to try and alter it,still wasnt happy,so painted over the top with Gesso then the paint,lo and behold the thing came through,I loved it ! happy mistake's happen.........The book Plate is a Tim Holtz,they are really nice,now i,ll be kept busy HOPEING to fill the pages lol,I also used crackle glaze to fix. Happy New Year to all ! xxx Inside Pages !

Wonderful journal Pattie. A journal is a very personal thing I believe but by transforming it to a piece of art it becomes something of interest to everyone. I love your entry for Jan 5th, don't we all have those kind of days LOL and yes I do believe your great grandaughter is taking after you :-)

Happy New Year
Paula
