The Mirror Crack'd has a new Challenge up and it is Recycle/Upcycle.
I honestly could not find anything I wanted to recycle, but what I did find is this old exercise book that had never been written in, the cover looked boring, so I up cycled to a more attractive state.
If you remember I gave you a sneak peek when I was constructing it a few months ago.
This cover is full of Mixed Media goodness...you would not believe how much mess I got into during the process. I have a few photos but understandable not many.
This is the book naked!
Coating of Gesso.
Applying Fibre past through a stencil and adding a cloth doily for texture.
Arranging all the elements.
And this is where I stopped with the photography, but my next step was covering the whole cover with Gesso.
Now a case of layering up Inks and paints to create some depth.
Click on pics to see the detail.
You can enter the Challenge here and at the same time have a browse at my fellow Dt creations for more inspiration.
Have a great week,
