Lucky for me I got to do this while Skype Scrapping with another gorgeous talented friend of mine - Fiona Butler, whom did the cover of her Smash Album at the same time!!
Here's a step by step on my Smash cover - using Cindy's technique as my base, and my little changes :-)
Before (with the plastic cover removed):
Remove the plastic and lay the book flat on your craft sheet. Pour some Tacky Glue/PVA on the cover - nice and thick. Use a pallet knife to spread it around - and your finger to get ridges and texture...
Then I added some Chipboard from Twiddleybitz, more glue, and heated again:
I then sprayed with a couple of green mists, and heated again:
Drying the mists as I went. The darker areas are where the glue had shrunk and the mists soaked into the paper on the front cover.
When it was dry on the surface I added silver Inka Gold to bring out the lovely textures created by heating the glue.
And with the materials I used:
Helmar Tacky Glue
Claudine Hellmuth Multi Medium Gloss
Twiddleybitz Chipboard Title - "A Beautiful Life"
Twiddleybitz Chipboard - Long Flourish No Tail (FLOR022)
Viva Inka Gold - Silver
Lindy's Stamp Gang - Freaky Franken Lime
Crafty Notions Colorspray - Luscious Green
Pallet Knife and Heat Gun.
Thanks for stopping by - I hope you like my project - once again, thanks to the very talented and creative Cindy Porter!
