Altered Mixed Media Notebook Cover

I’m Anat Weksler, a Brazilian Israeli. I live in Israel now. A full-time artist and mother of a gorgeous 12 year old girl.

I’m absolutely addicted to Mixed media like Canvases, Page Layouts and Altered objects , Mini albums,  cards and Tags, but love Scrapbooking as well.

I am so happy to be on Little Birdie Crafts blog as a Guest Designer.

I’ve altered a notebook cover using gorgeous Little Birdie’s chipboard frame, some of Little Birdie’s lovely flowers and twigs.

First I spread some sand texture paste through a stencil. After it dried, I painted the cover with black gesso and let it dry.

Next step was to spray shimmer color on top and let it dry again. Meanwhile drying I spread a little bit of sand texture paste on the frame. Colored the Burlap flowers and the frame with 2 of the colors I used on the cover.

The fun part was to assemble everything together and adhere it to the cover with Gel medium.

Last step was to dry brush everything with Heavy White Gesso. It brings everything together!

Here are the snapshots of my project:
