Stampin' Up! Mixed Media Book Cover

Our daughter created a book of love for her husband's 30th birthday and when she asked me to create the cover, I knew that Mixed Media techniques with Stampin' Up! supplies was the way to go!

Since he has received his book of compliled letters of love from family and friends on Friday, I wanted to share the basic mixed media process in pictures.

Stampin' Up! Mixed Media Process 1

 

First, I cut two pieces of chipboard from packages of Glimmer Paper to 9 x 12 and gave it two good coats of gesso.

 

Stampin' Up! Mixed Media 2

Made my own texture paste with recipe found online. (Leave a comment if you want the recipe!)

Stampin' Up! Mixed Media 3

Added texture with stencils made courtesy of my downline, Catherine, and Stampin' Up! MDS images, Window Sheets, and her Cameo ecutter!

Literal cutting and pasting of the words "you are loved" from the retired Expressions Thinlets ---may still be on the Clearance Rack for $14.99!

Glued punched shapes, dry embossing, and title for more texture.

Another coat of gesso!

Stampin' Up! Mixed Media 9

Lots of spray color with Stampin' Up! Stampin' Spritzers, ink refills, and rubbing alcohol mixture. Several coats were applied to get the desired intensity.  I had to be really patient to let it dry between coats!

Added sponging of Early Espresso ink to add a more masculine feel.

Using Stampin' Up! Encore Gold Ink to highlight the title and other textures. Just call me "Goldfinger".  :)

 

 

Stampin' Up! Mixed Media Cover

Here's the completed cover that I mailed to our daughter.  The back cover was the same without as much texturing details.  She made it into a 3 ring book with letters of love mounted on coordinating colors of card stock.  I also created several "pockets" with my Envelope Punch Board and Stampin' Up! Designer Paper.  These added interest to the book and held little noted and folded letters.

 

Mixed media is a lot of fun and very do-able with Stampin' Up! products and a few extras...give it a try.
