Altered Book covers X-post

Hi, here are some photos of my altered book covers, which were done for Christmas pressies! I also posted this in mixed media.

These books are A5 size. The first one is a 2017 diary. The others are notebooks. They don't photograph very well as they are so shiny! But I liked the way they turned out - a sort of 'Lord of the Rings' meets 'Harry Potter'!

Mixed media, including watermedia and all sorts of things, plus a lot of baking foil!

I hope you like them. The recipients certainly did!

Oh and a Happy New year to all!

Re: Altered Book covers X-post

Thanks for your kind comments! And a Happy New Year to Kay and to all of you!

The recipients did indeed like them, and as you can't make two the same, they are all unique in their own way. I enjoyed making them as well!

I might repeat the exercise now on a boxed canvas, just to see what happens!
