There’s nothing like a good book…cover
Good day! I wanted to share my latest project, which was inspired by a couple of wonderful pictures from The Graphics Fairy. I was also inspired because I went shopping to find the elements for my project…in my craft table! I love projects like this, when I actually go through my stockpile of findings, and come across things I love, and maybe forgot about. To start, I have these chip art pieces.
I chose the top two pieces to work with, and painted them with black (shocking!) acrylic paint mixed with a pearlized medium for a touch of shimmer. I printed my pictures and cut them out, inked around the edges and used Mod Podge to glue them down. I also gave them a coat of One Step Crackle.
Then, I just had some fun with the embellishments. Have you seen the Fragments from Tim Holtz? Just what I need- a new thing to obsess over! They are the small clear squares on top of the watch, and in the corners of the picture with many watches. They are so versatile, simply put-I love them.
I created further interest with some paper borders (that I made), small rick-rack, eyelets, and self-stick gems. I took seperate pictures so you can see the detail.
When I started these, I planned to put them together in a small book. However, I felt guilty covering one of them up, so I decided to use each one individually as it’s own cover.
