For now you can take inspiration from the cover I made for a little book meant to take the photos of our boat. Here it is:
Next I traced the outline of my book cover, fuzzy cut and blended the edges using my turquoise ink.
I started building my collage using turquoise ink and stamps from the Mixed Media Elements and Tree Silhouettes without using an acrylic block to mount as I wanted a faded blended in look. My sentiment was stamped with stamps mounted in Concord Crush.
Next I added some texture to the borders using Concord Crush ink a stamp from the Mixed Media Elements set before blending the edges with the same ink, layered on my chipboard cover and softened the edges using a small file. A piece of sandpaper would do too.
To finish I added the boat from the True North set and the birds from the Some Birds stencil. Here is the finished cover:
That's it from me for today. Have a lovely Christmas and a wonderful 2016!
