Winter Tales - Altered Book

 Welcome in a new creative year!

 Today the first fresh snow has fallen this winter, the landscape is transformed into a winter wonderland, 

simply fabulous and the right inspiration for a new book in Altered Art.

 

 

 

 

 

 

How you can create a book in Altered Art

 


basic materials

Dusty Attic chipboards;

Stamperia Paper 'Wintertales';

old book

 

 

1 separate the text with the help of a ruler and sharp cutter 

Tip: especially with older books where the paper is already very brittle, it does not have to be a straight cut, you can also simply tear them out by hand, this gives a wonderful old weathered look

2 choose a paper of your choice and stick it on the first and last page of your book


 

3 prime the chipboards with white acrylic paint and 

sprinkle deco snow into the paint while it is still wet 

Tip:  there are various types available commercially


 

4  now you can stick on your two book pages, paint them, decorate them with cutting dies,

 sayings or whatever other decoration you can think of

 Tip: for a 3D effect you can glue the chipboards and cut-out paper motifs between

 the single paper sheets too


5  I have also made a standing surface out of cardboard,  

book stands better and you can complement the theme with a landscape

I cut out a matching semicircle and transformed it into a winter landscape 

with white gesso and Deco snow

 which  Dusty Attic chipboards I used

 can you find here

 
 I hope I could inspire you to try something completely different
 with the awesome chippies from Dusty Attic!
 

Happy crafting!!
