Part 2 of the Altered book cover collage

Oh yay! It let me post a pic hehehehe....Now lets see how far blogger will let me get with the tutorial today! LOL

Step 6: For this project I used a turquoise color (it is actually a Caribbean Green..close enough lol) and antiquing gel medium....if you don't have this you can use a bit of brown paint....keep in mind brown paint does not wipe off as well as the antiquing gel med. For the turquoise part...Get your brush wet and then dab off as much water on a towel then dip brush into the turquoise paint and dab off again on a towel.....we are doing a dry brush technique as to not get the paper background too avoid bubbling your paper... see step 7

Step 7: Here is a photo of where I am randomly dry brushing the turquoise paint on....just do this in spot where you think you might like to see the color peek thru...

Step 8: Now we are going to antique our background....Using the antiquing gel medium or brownish paint we are going to do about the same thing as we did with our paint might want your brush just a tad bit more wet than in the last brush on small sections of antiquing gel med. to your background and grab a rag or paper towel and wipe the excess can rub this around a bit to get more coverage (the gel does spread around pretty well) continue this step till your piece is all antiqued...just play with it till you are satisfied with the look.

Grrrrrrrrrr blogger will not let me post no more pics at this time! What a pain! This will keep y'all on your toes lol....I suppose I will have to try later with the rest of the steps! Again! Sorry will get the whole tutorial eventually lol.... :P*rasberries* to blogger!

I guess I will get some art done while we are all waiting lol....and get some of it listed on eBay...

We have a new blog sista! Terri Stegmiller! Also goes by Stegart! She is new to this type of art! So please welcome Terri to the our little altered world! You can find her on my list along with other artsy folks I visit regularly! Who knows maybe she will end up addicted to junk art along with the rest of us hehehe!

Happy Creating!

Wahey! I'm catching up! This is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon, Nance! I'll try & post some 'in progress pictures on my blog as I's all a bit chaotic - if I wait to make the space first, I'll never get started, so I'm just using a corner of a table near the computer. I keep asking you questions, and you're right there with the answers! :)
Blast blogger & the picture-loading malarkey :( ~ you'll have tp post each step on Flickr, or maybe this should be a 'Try-It-Tuesday' technique, while Chrysti's so busy??? Why not?

I'm just waiting for the 'antiquing' layer to dry, although I've had to be very experimental with that...hehe...ah well, I'm just going with it & we'll see....:)

What's next?!! ;)

Big Hugs, Q xXx
