Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

Altered Book Cover

Here's where I have got to so far.

I stuck on the diecut letters and shapes and covered with texture paste which I stamped into as well.

I primed with Grey paint, washed that over with Clay, then another wash with Black.

I then Rainbow painted my letters and shapes.

I might crackle paint my letters and shapes for a glossy look.

Perhaps rub some metallic pastes into the backing?


Just not sure where to go now?

Any suggestions?

It's looking GOOD! I do like the idea of the metallic rubs though! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina :)
