Altered Greeting Card Book

It's April 1st already and time for a new Altered Eclectics challenge, as always the theme is Anything Goes as long as it's altered/mixed media, no cards allowed.

For my DT piece I've altered a Greeting Card Book.

These cute pups were on the front of the book.

The book has pockets on the inside to store greeting cards.

Inside the book were these adorable cards.

I covered the covers with paper, then I painted them with gesso and acrylic paint.

I stamped and stencilled the covers.

I stamped the PaperArtsy poppies on to paper and cut them out, I glued them to the covers and painted them with matt medium. I coloured the poppies with Faber-Castell Pitt Pens and blended them with my finger. I doodled round the edges with a black pen. I haven't done the inside of the book yet but I shall cover parts with paper and do some stamping.

I hope you will be able to join in with the challenge, my teamies have made some wonderful samples and they would love you all to take a look.

Thank you for looking, have a lovely day.
xxx Hazel.
