Today I'm sharing a step by step mixed media cover for a note book..and I started with cardboard..a cut up cardboard box..
This is another piece of card board as I forgot to photograph the first one..so I'm sharing between 2 projects..
Painted with white Gesso...twice.
Then added torn up papers and random lacy die cuts..
Some leaves, oval die cut and more oddments...lace and a pearl trim.
Flowers, an earring, bobbles, and a frame just slap it all on randomly..
Then painted the whole thing again with Gesso....and didn't like it.
So I slathered modelling paste all over just with a spatula
when dry[ didn't take long]..the fun stuff started, my Kaiser mists.. gorgeous colours.
Sprayed all over the outside and inside..
A close up..even the pearl trim takes sprays and gets covered..
I added a resin oval frame in the middle which did make a difference and sort of finished it off after it got a coating of Nuvo mousse ...
So did everything else, I love that stuff and cannot wait until my new colours come..
A close up of the frame from The Resin Embellishment shop..
And there she is in all her glory with a note pad stuck inside already to take notes and write in, but I cant...it's too pretty.
So there we go, thank you so much for stopping by, I'm off to make more cogs..
