Grungepaste note book

This fortnight, but spreading to 3 weeks, theme over on the Paperartsy blog is to create using grungepaste.  Unlike most texture mediums, grunge is very clay-eeee and dries quickly.

A couple of weeks ago whilst walking around WH Smiths I came across a little keyring notebook, this time, I've come across an A6 notebook with kraftcover for 79p, bargain, and just ready to alter…so… this is what I've done with it..

Using a Tim Holtz mask I added grungepaste to the cover and left to dry.  Whilst drying, I added grungepaste to a Tando small book frame - I gave the frame a really thick coating and then added texture by cutting into the wet paste using my spatula…..and left to dry.

Using Lin Brown's new paints I added colour to my dry base, blending as I went along.  Once dry I added a covering of Treasure Gold…the frame, once dry, was painted using Fresco Old Gold paint, the owl is another Tando Creative creation and painted using fresco paints.
