Book Panel by Brenda

I have a problem!!!! I seem to make endless projects for design teams and for myself but many of them are sitting in boxes as I just don't have enough room to display things. So my projet today is on a 22 1/2 x 15 1/2 cm piece of greyboard which I am going to use as a book cover and make more projects in the future that can be put together with this as a book.

Whilst making this I was inspired by Teamie Hannah's FaceBook live video on creating rust and I followed along when rusting the telephone dial.

The little bookplate was in a tub already rusted and it fitted perfectly with the word I had found to use. You can also see some of the texture I added to get this good grungy look.

Sometimes less embellishing is so eye catching and it lets the design in the background show through more.

There are some process steps and more photos over at Bumblebees and Butterflies if you're interested in seeing how this came together.

  1. Brenda, the rusting on this little book is SO impressive, it does look real! You are so right too, less is more is definitely the way to feature all the gorgeous texture and colours on this cover. Off to see more. xxx
