Mixed media wedding book cover

Hi everyone, it’s Marta Lapkowska here.

I am back to you with quite a special project today.
A few weeks ago my best friend was getting married. I knew that one of my special gifts must be handmade, preferably a mixed media guest book.
As imagined I created a mixed media cover of their Wedding Guest Book, I used colours that would coordinate with wedding colours.

I started with painting blank cover with white gesso, this was to help me to prime my surface for any medium work.

My next step was to build some texture, I used stenciling and art stones.

When everything was dry I added some chipboard and flowers. Before colouring I made sure all the elements are covered with white gesso.
Next step was to combine few lovely colours that would match wedding colour scheme.

I have to say that my friends loved their little surprise gift.

Thank you everyone and till the next time, Marta xx
