Book Cover for my AJ





Before
One of my favorite artists is Finnabair: Mixed-media Collage, Art-journal and Scrapbooking by Anna Dabrowska. Love how she mixes everything. 
My imitation is more simple than hers. I would never be able to use so much stuff without making it look like a mess.

Thougt it was time to make the front of my dictionary I am useing for my AJ .I covered the book with gesso and acrylic paint. Used some small stamps from Prima and added a mask. In the cornes did I use some Fragments and embossing powder and added a corner piece of Filigree Metal from The Funkie Junkie Boutique. The Mini Bookplate from Tando Creative is covered with crackle paint and distress ink.


Challenges I'll join:

FRILLY AND FUNKY CHALLENGE SUMMERTIME...... light colors (used Filigree Corners)
Totally Papercrafts - #175 - All of a Flutter - Tim Holtz bird
