Since I have joined the challenge over at 1 CAD I decided to put them all in book form. So I need a cover and SINCE the Unruly Paper Arts Challenge: Pink and Brown Shabby Chicis this month I have created this cover for my book. A wash of pink and white acrylic paint over a brown crackle finish gave me the base background. Then using Rogue Redhead Design Stamps (WHO IS HAVING A GREAT SALE RIGHT NOW) and brown ink I added the second layer, Then came the images from Recollections and Stampers Anonymous in StazOn Timber Brown. I added some white TH tattered flowers with pink rhinestone flowers in the centers, and adding a few to the dress form from Recollections. A pieces of white lace at the bottom with pink rhinestones for centers. clear rhinestones on the Stampers Anonymous image. The last piece was a small chip board flourish that received a coat of paint, Timber Brown ink and hand written title. At the end of July, when the challenge is over I will bind everything together.
So now I am off to get a short walk in before the temperature climbs past 80F. Supposed to be 102 F today and climbing to 109F tomorrow.......looks like summer has finally gotten here!
