Art is Life

Good morning all.

Lovely bright sunny day here yesterday, although it's definitely getting on the cool side now.

Another altered book cover today. this one has lain for a couple of weeks...I didn't like it after I was finished but it's kind of grown on me!

I painted with gesso then masked off the edges before colouring with distress ink in shabby shutter and victorian velvet. Stencil is from Memory Box. Stamps are from Clearly Besotted, Artistic Stampers and a set with Fill each Day with Joy written on the packet.

This is the before!
