Whoop whoop I managed to finish my cover at last, but sadly due to waiting for things to dry I just missed the linky thing which closed last night - hey ho at least I can say its all done tee hee.
Here you go........
Lol I couldn't face sanding my cover or applying a zillion coats of gesso so I covered my book in napkins and pva to create a key and some texture. The edges were tidied up with some tissue tape.
A base coat of electric blue acrylic was applied, no need for gesso as this is a good opaque colour!!! I then brayered on some turquoise acrylic to catch the texture. The edges were treated with some viva decor inca gold and I decided to do this across the whole cover too to further highlight the texture. Once dry this was buffed to a shine.
The title was created using some Tim Holtz grungeboard shapes - painted, stamped with archival ink using a stampers anonymous classic set, and edged with inca gold again. The 2 in the middle was embossed twice with gold.
Tee hee, big sister to the rescue with some book corners too, thank-you sweetie.
Many thanks for popping by and leaving a comment if you feel you would like to, your time and thoughts mean so very much.
