Outside The Box!


Talk about out of my comfort zone!
Here is a sneaky peak at my work so far on an altered book..
Trying so hard not to over think it... (as recommended by 2 friends! lol)

The book with first 2 layers on it. 
A strip of burlap (£1 shop purchase!)
burgundy card embosses with a swirly folder. torn edges and pearlescent paint gently swept across it with a flat brush  (saw it done on You tube this morning.. but mine didnt go quite as her did!)

Lid off a sweet tube, filled with shredded was crayon, clear ep. wax, pearlex..
Gone a bit muddy and dried/set to a matt finish.. So might fill it with Glossy accents..

A few more layers added..
A matt gold card scrap embossed with a sunrays.
Scruffed edge with scissors and sanded top a little.
brown square with torn edges, embossed on a grid like folder, then same pearlesecent water colour gently brushed over the top to highlight.
larger piece of black/gold card painted with alcohol inks (years ago! - found in my stash)
A burgundy lace just above centre

This is how it is at the moment.
Letting it dry.

Will share more as and when I get to it..

Kind Regards
