Hi! I'm sharing my "Admit One" album for the Book Covers theme this week at Tando Creative. I started with a Neil Walker Geometric Book Cover Kit.
I added some fun texture to the base of my cover. I started by applying a layer of gesso, and once that was dry, crushed egg shells. If you'd like to try this technique I share my tutorial on a similar project HERE. I colored my cover with Radiant Rain Mist, Twinkling H2Os and Silks Acrylic Glaze.
I covered a stamped ticket with a Tim Holtz facet. As this will be my journal, I thought "Admit One" was a nicer way of saying "Keep Out!"
I added a flower and some charms to finish the cover.
I added a mix of watercolor, kraft and cardstock papers to the inside of the album and bound it with a piece of ribbon. The back cover is "naked." I decided to save the other set of geometric pieces for the cover of another album!
Here's Neil's version of the same album. You can find more of his amazing work on his blog Neelz Expressionz.
