Spring is in the air

Hi Everyone...

Hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start!

I have a handmade book to share with you today,  the products featured in this project are Colourcraft's Acrylic Paints, Sprays and Soft Form Relief Paste.



Step 1

Take 3 pieces of mat board and glue down onto a paper of your choice, I used some patterned paper with spring green colours.


Step 2

Mitre your corners and apply a strip of double sided tape around the outside edge


Step 4

Remove the adhesive tape and stick down your edges


Step 5

Flip your book cover over and take a stencil and apply a layer of Soft Form Relief Paste over the top of the stencil, remove stencil and dry with a heat tool.. at this stage I used a paper piercer and pierced holes around the edge of the book cover at 1/4" intervals.


Step 6

Using sprays and acrylic paint, decorate the cover of the book, until you get the look you fancy, I use white acrylic paint to knock back the intense colours of the sprays.


Step 7

I stitched some plain hemp cord around the perimeter of the book, added the signatures and the project is complete.



I hope you like todays project and look forward to seeing you all in a couple of weeks time with another spring themed project.
