Altered book cover collage tutorial...for Lia and my Blog Sista's Part 1

Lia asked for an altered book cover collage here you go sweetie!

Step 1: Choose the book cover size you would like to use for this project. You can leave the cover on the book for an altered book project or you can go on as follows in the tutorial.

Step 2: If you would like to use just the cover for this project (works as a canvas board of sorts) then you will need to remove the cover from the book using a craft knife as shown in photo.

We are going to use this inside cover for the base of your collage. Lets move onto step 3.

Step 3: Choosing your papers for your background. I used painted magazine papers and old scrap book pages...Use up those scraps girls!!!

Step 4: Tear up your papers into smaller pieces. Use a good variety of papers to give your art piece more interest.

Step 5: Arrange your torn papers in a pleasing matter. Arrange them till you are happy with it, then adhere to the your base using glue stick or gel medium.

Ok I gotta stop here....and do another post....blogger isn't letting me put any more pic's on this one for some darn reason! ugh! See the rest of the steps in the next blog post.... :P
