Amanda's blog then you are in the right spot!
For my project I worked on the cover of my newest altered adventure. Recently I began an altered book to use mixed media to work through my feelings about stuff going on around me--a if I were in charge of the world I'd do it THIS way kind of thing!
Having a space to art and journal about the injustices, the drama and the trauma helps me to not get bogged down and lose site of what's important in my life--my family.
The Process--This is layered over the actual cover of the book with book paper, antique atlas pages, Sakura, Terri Sproul Mixers, more paper and more paper☺and some fun chipboard letters that were altered with book paper and more mixers! I love how the cover turned out so far.*

various areas of the book--this looks like

using Miracle Tape available at Viva las Vegastamps!
Viva Las Vegastamps also carries the entire
collection of Terri Sproul Mixers & Sakura Crystal Lacquer
*There will be more lumpiness added to the cover and fibers and such to the spine when I finish altering all the pages...but since I'm still working on the pages in the book I wanted to keep the embellishing low-profile for now.
Be sure to check out all the links, leave comments and enter for a chance to win a bottle of lacquer and a package of 3 mixers! There will be one winner--post on the Sakura Blog and let us know which project was YOUR favorite--the winner will be announced in Monday the 30th.
