I had asked to recycle a book using Mixed Media products and Jean provided me with a hard covered book to use and I just had to bring an old picture/photograph for the front.
I was pleased when I saw the book I would be using as I had already read it in paper back form so wouldn't have to sit there reading it before I could get started !! Lol. The first thing was to cover the entire front and back covers using Imagination Crafts Rusty Patina. I chose to use a dark brown and a sea green This dries remarkably fast so the next stage was to get really messy and using your fingers daub on Imagination Crafts Starlight Wax in a rustic gold colour and rub into the surface to give the sparkle. I could choose the embellishments and I went for butterflies (what a surprise ), an old key, buttons and a Heartfelt flower die which were all given the same treatment. The old photograph I took along was a photo copied image of my G.G. Grandfather. The original photo is a lot bigger and shows he is carrying a shot gun and has his faithful black dog at his feet.
