Here's a sneek peek at the back cover of the booklet, wich I entered in the Eclectic Paperie Challenge: Fabric, since I incorporated tule fabric in the design.
For this page I first made a background with acrylic paints and some stencilling. Wich I then allmost completely covered with the cut outs from the papers. I sanded the pictures and then added some white acrylic paint as a white wash. It was really fun, sanding the paper and I love how it makes the pictures look.
For the next page I explored the layering technique a little more by adding strips of book pages (cut outs from the iPhone case I made), tule fabric, acrylic paints, glimmer mists and alcohol inks. I can't remember what colours I used. I then added the little fussy cut girl, distressed her with victorian velvet, walnut stain and brushed corduroy. I then gave her wings and added a diamond glaze over the top.
For the back cover I completely went with the layering. I layered strips of paper, corrigated board, tule fabric, doylies and die cuts. On top of that I painted texture paste. After letting that dry, I sprayed it with tree different colours of glimmer mist (Red velvet, scarlet and caribbean blue). Then I leaned back and watched the magic happen, when all the colours did their thing. I let it air dry, because that seems to be the best thing for this technique. I repeated this process twice and after that I went in with some gold rub 'n buff and white and black acrylic paint. I'm rather pleased with how it turned out.
Lastly I have taken a picture of my journal page with the Venice picture, just to proove that it is indeed Venice...
With, as added bonus, a view of my exploded work surface.
