Don’t forget the inside covers when designing your book it is a perfect place to add beautiful details, add a note to the person you are giving the book to or add your name and the date the book was made. The inside front cover sets the tone for the entire book.
Layer little details such as simple vintage tags, chipboard pieces, burlap and washi tape that all look as if they have been around for ages, so beautiful.
Not sure how to use fabric in your mixed media projects? use it just like paper. The texture adds a new dimension to you layouts.
Choose basic stripes, dots and simple prints along side more details and larger scale prints for an amazing composition. Layers of different prints in black and cream look terrific together. Using elements like Tissuestock which is a high quality tissue with a touch of wax is a great choice and it will stand up to the glue and adhesive you use.
Add splashes or dots of mist paint to add color and a feeling that all the layers go together. This adorable vintage chair was painted to add just the right detail.
Distress different elements with mist or distressing ink to give them a touch of the past . You can also add a touch of color to black and white art making it your own.
Choose decor elements carefully and use them here and there. The Tattered Angels Mixed Media Origins Papers are printed in black and white on a very cool and special paper that you can color in the way you want to match your color story. Add a bit of color or add a lot, your choice. Glimmer Mist is the perfect choice for watercoloring in black and white art, just shake and dip your favorite brush in. The glimmer of the mica is stunning.
Finish the front cover with a beautiful background and layers with just a touch of color and a bit of ribbon and it will be a shop stopper.
Ilana mentioned, “The difficult part of the project was the binding. It was the first time I tried this kind of binding and I found it tricky.” Here are some binding ideas we found on Pinterest. You might want to try to see which one works best for you. The choice you make may depend on the number of pages, how thick you want to make each page or the tools you have. We are sure you will find just the right one for you.
