For my project I decided to alter a little board book, using the wonderful Halloween Takes Flight set and the Art Journaling with Terry Sproul set.
As there are quite a number of blogs to visit, I will keep the descriptions brief and let the pictures do the talking.
The little book started life looking like this:
I liked the fact it had the hole at the top, perfect for a ribbon. I covered it all with a few layers of Gesso, then added texture to the cover with some texture paste and embossing folders and then coloured all of the pages with various colours of acrylic paints. The stamps were all stamped on tissue paper and then adhered to the pages with gel medium.
I kept the inner parts light to be able to integrate the tissue paper stamped images better into the page. I will show you an example of before and after so you see what I mean:
All the other pages were done in exactly the same way, just using some of the different stamps on this wonderful Halloween plate:
I added the ribbon and a few danglies to the cover and that was it.
Remember, you can win the very stamp plate I have used here. So make sure you visit all the others for some fabulous inspiration! Below you find the order of the hop and I very much hope you will pay my teamies a visit too, follow them and leave them comments to be in with the prize.
