Hi all, Lea’s here. For this new appointment I wanted to dedicate a mixed media project, a mini album completely handmade.
I made the cover with the heavy recycled cardboard covered with cotton fabric. Before proceeding with the decoration I treated the background with the clear gel to isolate the tissue from the next steps and make it less absorbent.
I then added various embellishments: lace, twines, wood veneer, beads and micro beads, small sequins. Finally many splashes of color.
The inside pages, bound with bind it all, have very few embellishments; for the background, as for the cover, I used Shimmerz Paint with a spatula and some stamped.
Thanks for getting here in this long post, I hope I have inspired at least a little, and I assure you that getting your hands dirty with colors is very liberating.
