I started by cutting out the center of almost all of the pages of my old garage sale book. I lathered on a thick coat of modge podge.
After my pages dried I coated the cover with a rough coat of Art Anthology gesso.
Then I thought a bit of texture would be nice so I grabbed my Kaleidoscope stencil and a bit of AA Stucco.
Finally it was time to start having fun! It was time to add some color!! So I started with a mix velvets.
Now I was having so much fun I had to use my favorite AA combo, A bit of Raider Colorations and the Cracked Stencil.
I just love the look it adds!!
Next I wanted just a bit of sparkle so I added some Vegas Gold Sorbet through the fun Dot Matrix stencil.
While all that color was drying I started coloring my flowers & ribbon. Tip: When you can try buy white or light or colored flowers and ribbon they are easily transformed.
After everything was dry I started to pile my flowers, ribbon and miscellaneous bits on top of my book.
