Mixed Media Altered Notebook Cover
Back today with my second inspiration for June on 2Crafty Chipboard.
I altered a notebook cover in mixed media style using a lot of mixed media supplies and some beautiful chipboard pieces from 2Crafty.
I started with applying gesso on the front and back covers, followed by texture crackle paste and more texture with stencil.
Then I sprayed color using Lindy's Sprays in pink and brown.
I also embossed certain areas with white EP using a script stamp.
I created a collage with various elements and used three different pieces of chipboard, layering them with other elements.
I chose to use Baroque design so to make everything come together with the background
where I used a Motifs design stencil.
For "My Happy Place" which appears as the focal element here, I embossed it with
Golden Embossing Powder to make it stand out, and put it on the top most layer.
So for the Baroque Corners and Wendy's border, I applied a layer of gesso, followed
by distressing and some stamping.
I also embossed certain parts of Wendy's border with white Embossing Powder.
I used one of the Baroque corners on the back cover of the notebook.
