My red umbrella - Print

Love this idea for (AND ONLY FOR) books that have fallen apart: Print an outlined picture on it and color. Could do a set for a kid's room, or a set of silhouette prints on classic novel pages for the library.

Covers gessoed with crumpled tissue and cheesecloth, then modeling paste stenciled on.

Altered Book using cheap toys, a paper towel, mod podge and craft paint. Awesome!


One day, I will attempt something like this. I love how its painted onto an old book. Its beautiful :)

LOVE this... lighthouses are close to my heart anyway... wouldn't it be super cool if the wording in the picture was scripture? .... yea
