Altered book cover by Arantzazu

hi everyone!!!

Here it is still raining and it seems that Spring does not arrive so with this time it is best to stay at home having a cup of tea and reading a good book! and talking about books .... this time I decided to alter the covers of one of them.

The first thing, I applied a coat of gel medium to stick the paper and another one on top to protect it.

When it dried well I applied a layer of gesso, not very smooth and sprayed it with a little bit of water. I tried to create a false veil...

Then I glued a loom and gave it a layer of gesso, After this step, I used some sprays to add a little bit of color.

I painted with the impasto paint and then with the wax. I added gesso mixed with water to get a similar tone. I did the same with the metallic butterfly.

To finish, I added some little stars, string and glitter!

Here is my video tutorial:
