Now, we are ready to start on making some signatures to put inside the book.
So I will take the first signature and trim the side edges evenly.
Make a template from scrap paper, 2" x 8" long. Fold in half along the 8" length.
Continue threading ribbon in and out down the length of the spine until you return to the center hole on the outside.
Let's work on a page inside. Ready for some more mixed media? Coat first page with DecoArt White Gesso. Let dry.
The reason for doing this is to "integrate" the sticker into the page, rather than have it just appear to be "stuck" to the top of the page.
Next, apply a mix of DecoArt Titanium White and Cerulean Blue with a sponge over the page. If it starts to look too blue, then add a bit more of the Yellow Green spray on the sponge and blend.
Remember, it is all about playing and experimenting, so my instructions are just to let you know what I did to this page. You can make it your very own with your own color combos.
