Mixed Media Altered Book - Finnabair Creative Team

Hello Everyone,

This month I am happy to bring to you a little book makeover. This beautiful old book was once a beloved encyclopedia. Now I am sure the majority of us are old enough to remember these in book form. These days you will find them on DVD's or  not used at all with people relying on our good old friend Mr Google. So if you have an old encyclopedia lying around, don't throw it out, give it a beautiful makeover.

I have always wanted to try a folded book, always throwing myself in at the deep end I tried to go with a more complicated fold for my first attempt. There were a few mishaps along the way, but in the end it worked and I am super happy.

Art Extravagance Texture Paste in Clear Crackle gave my book a beautiful vintage look, here is a close up.

As my tutorial is very photo heavy I have made it into a picture YouTube video for you all to watch.
Please sit back and enjoy watching how the book jacket evolved from start to finish.
