Altered book cover

Hi Everyone!
Leanne here to share a project with you today, using wonderful chipboard products from Memory Maze.

Altered Book

Today I'm sharing and old book which I have altered, I have used lots of Memory Maze Chipboard on this book cover. Finnabairs metallic paints, waxes and rust pastes, and a old book, prima artifacts and some metals.

I have used lots of different chipboard from memory Maze to create this cover, firstly I painted the old book with black Gesso. I then arranged my design in layers, painting with black gesso in between, to have good coverage of my chipboard. I then used Finnabair metallic paints, in several colours adding the layers, until I had the desired effect. I wanted the grunge steampunk loook I added some metals and artifacts, and finishing off with waxes and rust pastes.

I'm going to use this book as journal art book, at the moment its art piece on my coffee table.
