Shabby Chic Book Cover – Grace

This week I’ve created quite a ‘big’ project with my DT kit, using and inspired by AB Studio Shabby Love Symphony; I’ve made this hardback mixed media book cover. Being as it was a bigger project than usual, the best way to show you what I did (including making the cover itself from scratch) is via the process video, which you can watch here.


This is the cover before all the mixed media elements were added:

I chose one paper from the AB paper pack to use for the outside cover so it would flow nicely between the panels, and cut the pieces to size

They were all covered with clear gesso, before adding stamping, stencilling, and then 3D elements including flowers and chipboard.

Paints used include Impasto in Dusty Rose, and Fabrika Decoru Shabby Velour in Heather.

Splatters were added with Fabrika Decoru Chalk Spray in Blue Shabby and Distress Oxide Spray in Victorian Velvet.

And of course, everything was stuck together and held in place with the fantastic 3D Gloss Gel by Prima!
