Altered Grunge BookHappy Happy Happy Friday! Today I'm showing you how I altered a Book, not the Cover! The whole thing! After I finished this one, I am so Inspired to make another with a whole different look!
I bought this book fro my local dollar tree for $1
I started off with covering the whole thing with Clear Gesso, I also used the gesso to stick some of the pages together.
Next I used Tim Holtz New Idea-Ology Collage paper (Aviary) and stuck those down with Distress Collage Medium -Crazing-, Then added Tim Holtz Design Tape (Collector and Merchant). His design Tapes are so Yummy to look at!
Here I stenciled on Modeling paste
I took Cheese Clothe, Medical tape and ribbon and stuck it in between some of the pages.
I wanted to lighten it up a bit so I used White Gesso and kinda dry brushed some areas.
Now here is where we get grungy!!! I used Metal Rust Effect Paste from Finnabair and kinda dragged it along the sides and corners.
I used Matte Gel Medium, Art Stones and Mini art stones to add some texture .
I used a coffee spray I made myself and soaked the sides,top and bottom of the book. Then I grabbed yellow spray and let it drip down the top with the help of some water.
I added prills (Spruce Willis) and Used the Glimmer Of Light Stamp set by Visible Image.
I Grunged up a Tim Holtz Adornment tag (Foundry) tied bakers twine to it and Stapled it right on!
I grunged up some resin wings with the metal rust pastes and used Finnabair mechanicals (Pocket Watch and Metal Lotus), Did Some splashes with coffee and Stamperia Aqua Color. And done!
