Last of the tutorial for Altered book covers

I believe we left off at cutting out your text and adhering it to your book cover...if I left something out, please don't hesitate to ask, I will be more than happy to help you out! :)

Here is my image and text adhered to my book cover!

Let's move on to some texture!

Step 12(i think lol): Adding texture.

Here I have one of those infamous starbucks coffee sleeves that my hubby brings me...minus the coffee ahem! lol ....tear into smaller pieces and arrange them on your background...once your happy with the arrangement go ahead and glue them down.

Step 13: With the same paints we used earlier for the background....brush on a dab of turquoise and let dry...then use your antiquing gel medium over top and wipe off excess.

"Sometimes I sits and thinks...and sometimes I just sits"

And here it is....finished!!! You can add other bits and pieces to your altered book cover...the possibilities are endless!!

Ok! I want to see those Altered book covers...hehehe

Wooohooo! Blogger let me finish the tutorial! Yay!!!

Tomorrows blog will be low key...but I will need for all of you to read will mean alot to me!!

Happy Creating!
