Altered Book - April Showers
What better way to remember all the rain we've had this month. Hoping the umbrellas stand out as the dominant features in this spread as I didn't manage that principle last Altered book Lesson. I do believe I have included the design element of "texture" from the current lesson as I used texture folders on all the umbrellas plus a bit of ink and embossing powder too.
Really enjoyed painting the background over 2 coats of gesso and also used gesso to mix the blue colours and finally I have managed to obliterate the words on the pages. RESULT!
