Make your own mini brag books, prayer diaries and notebooks with pre-cut greyboard book covers. Decorate the covers with acrylic paints and ink pads and add the pages for altering with paper cuttings, printed and decorated papers.
Paint the book covers with the DecoArt Media white paint and when it dries, use the stencil brush with vertical strokes to add the DecoArt Extreme Sheen silver paint.
When the surface dries, use a sponge dauber to light cover with the VersaFine CLAIR inks avoiding over colouring the silver painted areas. Use a soft towel to remove excess ink from the surface.
Remove a branch from the Tando greyboard leaves to use as a 'stamp'. Set it on the VersaMark watermark pad to soak ink and then press onto the green coloured book cover. Add white embossing powder and heat set.
Press the same branch onto the VersaFine CLAIR Rain Forest ink pad and stamp on the cover surface. Let it air dry or speed up the process with a heat tool.
Use pages from the paper pad to cover the inside of the book covers.
Wrap some jute cord on the front book cover (if the jute cord looks too thick, remove some by reverse twisting it and use a part of it). Remove the hanger ring from the metallic frame and add it on the side of the jute cord.
Use the jewellery glue to set the branch inside the frame and fill spaces with the small no hole beads.
Continue adding embellishments.
For the purple cover, add a piece of the ribbon, covering inside and outer covers.
Colour a large greyboard branch with the VersaFine CLAIR Purple Delight ink pad.
Place the branch and add small and medium size no hole rainbow beads.
For the blank pages, cut A4 pages 16x7cm, fold in half and per 5 pages add them with a strong string or twine to the cover using the exisiting cuttings on the book cover spine.
