Monochromatic Altered Book
by Jowilna Nolte
There is something special about pulling out all your products in a specific color scheme and getting creative. Instead of using a plain notebook to make an art journal page, I’ve opted to use an old book. Seeing the text in some places is quite appealing. Take a look how I combined all my favorite products to create a study in blue.
Cover the pages of an old book with Gesso using an InkBlusher. Let Dry.
Mist the pages with Fireworks, and then over that with water. Let air dry.
Using a Jumbo Dauber and/or some pattern stamps, stamp patterns of VersaMagic Night Sky. Add a couple pieces of torn coordinating washi tape.
Apply Creative Medium through a raindrop stencil over the entire background created. Leave to dry.
Using irRESISTible spray in Bahama Blue, splat some onto the pages using the tube attached to the spray top to flick it on. Use irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Electric Blue to make random small, medium and large dots. Let dry.
Die cut a watch piece in blue cardstock for the focus piece. Cover in Delicata White Shimmer ink. Then daub around the edges in Delicata Dark Brown Shimmer.
Adhere the watch to your journal/book page. Add other embellishments. I inked some chipboard pieces with the VersaMagic Night Sky as part of my final arrangement.
