she had a lot on her mind--an altered book cover

Okay, I use old book covers for canvases--that's still altered, right?

Ink spritzed cheesecloth, glass beads and microbeads, and the Steampunk Cameo and Gears chipboard from Leaky Shed Studio.  She's all crackled up with Crackle Glaze and Antiquing Cream from the DecoArt media line.

Okay okay okay, want to know my new favorite sparkle trick?  Mix any color of the DecoArt Glamour Dust Glitter Paint with the Champagne Gold Metallic paint.  Depending on how much Champagne Gold is used, you can get one of those beautiful shabby chic colors, but with amazing shine.
By the way, if you have some Leaky Shed chip, Laura Gilhuly is hosting a challenge with a fun prize--you'll find the details HERE.

Thank you for stopping by, and have a wonderful Tuesday!

A beautiful design- love the shimmer you added- and the cheesecloth is a great textural element.
