Faux leather book wooden box

Hi there !

We are at the end of August, back-to-school is already behind us, it’s time to dive into books… Wait what ? Yes books… You know I’m talking about mixed media, right ? My project for today is an altered wooden box, in shape of a book ! And what did I do with it ? Make it look like a leather covered book !

The technique I used to create this leather look is imprint a rubber stamp into Mud Texture paste ! You just have to apply a layer of Mud paste, let it dry almost competely and then press the stamp over the paste and remove carefully…

Once dry, you can paint it as you want. Here I used Chocolate Sorbet (you can also use the Kona Velvet) and Cocoa Shine to give this old leather look.

And I used Teal Velvet and Copper Metallic from the Patina Texture set to give an antique look at my metal embellishments.

This imprint technique is a real deal ! It does look like emboss leather !

As always, I made a video tutorial for you to follow this particular technique and enjoy the transformation of a plain wood box into an leather like book…

Thank you for stopping by the blog today ! I hope you liked this new project… See you soon for another one !

Have a great day !

FLY mini-book, by Marleen

Hello everyone, Marleen here with a mini-book tutorial for you.

My inspiration came from everywhere!! Do you remember my earlier post about the lace book cover I made?? Well I promised you to show the inside later on. Guess what, the cover was too small for all those pages.
So I made a bigger cover now and finished the inside pages!

I used many many Art Anthology stencils you can find them all HERE.

Here you can see the video tutorial:

Hope it inspired you all ūüėČ
