This book had me at hello. The perfect size to get creative, show lot’s of pictures and have enough room to journal. I covered it with Core’dinations cardstock. It has a such great dimension and offers fabulous texture and neat designs. Then I decorated it with Fancy Pants papers and Jillibean Soup alphabet letters.
The inside page, I covered again with Core’dinations cardstock. Love it. Because I knew that the front and back pages would take a lot of beating, I did cover them with Decopage. It is a clear, satin finish glue that seals everything in. Works great, however, didn’t leave me showing you the crisp photo, a tad blurred. my apologies.
The next page is a canvas sheet. You can leave and use it in its raw state like below.
But I knew I wanted to brighten it up a bit, so I painted it with a white acrylic paint, and then started doodling and colouring with my Copic markers.
When I stuck the title letters to this page, I did use a liquid adhesive like Beacon’s Fabritak because I wanted it to stick well, knowing it would absorb some into the fabric.
I used 2 of the Basically Bare birds on this page. I painted them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze and Glam. Added a little white paint for the eyes, and a little marker work around the white. Sparkly creatures.
Check back tomorrow to see a few more pages from this book.
