It’s February already and time for the first Altered Eclectics challenge of the year. As always the theme is Anything Goes as long as it’s mixed media or altered art, no paper crafts allowed.
My DT project is an altered art journal cover.
This is the cover that I’ve altered. I started by removing the chipboard pieces to give me a flat surface to work on.
I found some embossed and die cut card and some wooden pieces that I thought I would use.
I painted the cover with gesso and adhered some of the embossed and die cut card, I decided to use the wooden butterflies, when all the glue was dried I gave it another coat of gesso and then painted it with Decoart acrylic paints, I also used gelatos to add colour.
I dry brushed the cover with some white acrylic paint and added splatters, then I added some metalic wax, the wax doesn't show up on the photo.
This photo shows the front and back, I used a napkin to decorate the back, I think I prefer it to the front.
Thank you for dropping by and enjoy your day, I'm off to the haidressers soon - I'd rather stay in my warm house though. xxx
