Fresh Snow – Kerstin Filou

 Welcome in the new creative year!

 Today the first fresh snow has fallen this winter, the landscape is transformed into a winter wonderland, simply fabulous and the right inspiration for a new book in Altered Art.

How you can create a book in Altered Art


Basic materials

Dusty Attic chipboards;

Stamperia Paper ‘Wintertales’;

Old book

1 separate the text with the help of a ruler and sharp cutter 

Tip: especially with older books where the paper is already very brittle, it does not have to be a straight cut, you can also simply tear them out by hand, this gives a wonderful old weathered look

2 choose a paper of your choice and stick it on the first and last page of your book

3) prime the chipboards with white acrylic paint and sprinkle deco snow into the paint while it is still wet 

Tip:  there are various types availablecommercially

4)  now you can stick on your two book pages, paint them, decorate them with cutting dies,

 sayings or whatever other decoration you can think of

 Tip: for a 3D effect you can glue the chipboards and cut-out paper motifs between

 the single paper sheets too

5)  I have also made a standing surface out of cardboard,  book stands better and you can complement the theme with a landscape

I cut out a matching semicircle and transformed it into a winter landscape with white gesso and Deco snow

  I hope I could inspire you to try something completely different with the awesome chippies from Dusty Attic! 

Happy crafting!!
