Book Cover


Over on the PA blog Liz has been back this week and although I've not had a lot of time I was inspired by her wonderful book which you can see here.  I haven't had time to decorate a book, but I've made a start with a cover.


Close up of the LP image stamped in royal purple stazon, housed in the TH idea-ology fancy frame.


And instead of metal I ran a piece of silver sticky foil through a texture fade, coloured it with snow cap, wild plum and sail boat blue alcohol ink and then rubbed on renaissance and onyxite treasure gold.
