Hi friends…. This is the notebook cover i altered some months ago…. My husband wanted a notebook to list his paediatric surgery patients . As you know it is always difficult to find gifts for guys i thought i’ll grab this chance and made this mixed media notebook cover for the note i bought for him……As you know it is really closecto my heart and he loved it …..
I first black gessoed the whole cover…. For the back cover i added a lace and applied Finnabair texture paste opaque matte with” Art is ” stencil….
For the front page i used industrial barbed stars chipboard from DUSTY ATTIC and also used this gorgeous chipboard with alphabets, numbers and symbols from 2 CRAFTY…..
I also added some metal embellishments – all glued together with Finnabair soft gloss gel…
I covered the whole thing with black gesso. I used LINDYS SPRAYS
- BURNT UMBER
- CANA LILY BURNT ORANGE
- GOSSAMER GOLD
- MILK CHOCOLATE BROWN
I used FINNABAIR ART ALCHEMY PLUM RESERVES for the embellishments…. This is one of my favourite art alchemy paints… it gives that rich feel……
Atlast i highlighted the industrial barbed stars chipboard with ART ALCHEMY RICH COPPER WAX and the 2 crafty chipboard with ART ALCHEMY VINTAGE SILK WAX…. .I also used ART ALCHEMY BRONZE AGE WAX to highlight some of the embellishments.. .
And here i am with this beautiful surprise for my hubby……
some closer shots……
See you soon in another post…..
