Altered Paper Mache Book

Feb 15, 2011

This altered piece uses all brand new CHA‑W release prod­ucts by Tim Holtz. I was so hap­py to see the Frac­tured Doll in my box of prod­ucts to design with.… I love these dolls and you get two dif­fer­ent sized dolls per pack­age! Next to the white seam bind­ing I attached one of his new Chain Tas­sels. These are the per­fect accent for a project and I love the move­ment of the tas­sel. The pat­terned papers used are from his new Paper Stash — Crowd­ed Attic line. This paper line is so pret­ty and has designs in it for all styles. The but­ter­flies and moths behind the Frac­tured Doll and among the paper flow­ers inside the book are from Tim’s new Sal­vage Stick­ers — Crowd­ed Attic. I real­ly like the but­ter­flies and moths images. They are super nice and the per­fect size for my mini projects. I also like the busi­ness card Sal­vage Stick­ers I attached to the spine of the book. He has a great selec­tion of those to pick from. I accent­ed the edge of the spin using 2mm cream self adhe­sive pearls and applied crys­tal coarse glit­ter to the cones and page area. I wish you could see how this piece sparkles in the light. It is so pret­ty. The front cov­er of the book is cov­ered in Rock Can­dy Dis­tress Crack­le Paint. Once dry I applied vin­tage pho­to Dis­tress Ink on top work­ing it into the cracks. Then I wiped off the excess ink with a paper tow­el. Per­fect accent for an aged book.

Tomor­row’s post will be all about “art­ful cou­ture”… this new die is super awe­some!
