Altered Book Cover by Karen Knight

Karen_picHello!! Karen here with you again today! Hope you have had a wonderful week and are getting the chance to get a little creative!
Today I have an altered Tim Holtz Worn Book Cover to share with you. I have to admit, I have a little addiction to these things, and they are perfect teamed with a couple of packs of Tag Page pockets to keep a tag journal of all the tags I make.

This time I’ve altered it with some of my favourite Distress colours, using Distress Paints, Distress Markers,  old book pages and some tissue wrap, and tape.  The Distress lines blend and work together so well, and are a pleasure to use, If you haven’t had a play with the Distress Paints, you really should have a go, they do some amazing things when spritzed with water before they are dry as well, and of course seeing that the range includes the whole pallet of colours we’ve come to know and love with Distress Inks, there is sure to be a colour or two  to suit everyone, wether you love more vintage grungy tones or gorgeous bright vibrant colours.

Pretty Journal Cover by Monika Dabrowska-Ejmont

MonikaHello!   It’s Monika again 🙂

There was lot of sewing going on in my house lately.  So I got inspired by it. My mumma does it, 🙂  I just watch, admire the colours and touch and feel fabrics, laces, buttons. And I always wonder how it would look if I paint over that pattern or this one?  How paint will behave itself on it? What texture I will end up with? What else I can throw on it? 

So I decided to give it a go!  I made a journal ( notebook, book) cover. You can put on one journal and when you are done with it, you can transfer it on another.  Hope you like it.
