Very proud to be on the PaperArtsy blog with my book project. I wanted to make a book as you go creation and started with the covers. They measure approx 7 by 7". I brayered on some Fresco chalk Paint in Inky Pool and dragged over Distress Oxides in Faded Jeans, sqirted a little water at the lower section.
I built up the collage elements with various Mini stamps from the range and glued into position. I used a branch from an old cherry tree for further interest.
The back cover consists of some more brayering with Banana Fresco and made a collagraph printing plate with the beach hut. Some free form marks with a wood pen.
This page I used the stamps to create a background and used some of my photography for the focal point.
This shows the finished back cover.
This page happened by accident, I started it but fell out with it, so I used it to 'clean' off the brayer. A few days later I really liked the effect..
Finally a close up of the front cover.
I have had such fun creating this book, it will continue to grow. I love the way that all the pages are slightly different in size, just what I wanted to achieve.
