Creating a Burlap Book Cover~ Finished with Lace Flowers, part 2In: part 2 burlap book cover. celestina marie design October 29, 2012 By: Celestina Marie
Chapter 2 in this beautiful book is called "Living and Working Enthusiastically" So with that thought, let me share the finish for the burlap book cover creating a pretty bouquet of flowers and leaves.
Tip, when painting leaves or other small parts, I use a piece of cardboard with double stick tape to hold the parts in place. You can then paint away or embellish without holding the small element. Let dry and they will be ready to use. If you have to paint the backs, turn over restick in place after dry, and paint again. I find two or three coats work best to cover fabric leaves. The paint soaks in, unless you want a transparent style. It looks like this~~
part 1 to see.
Thank you for stopping by to view the completed cover. Hope you might try it. There are lots of ways to design book covers. This creation just worked for my book and the burlap fabric.
You may have another version that works too. Isn't it fun to share our ideas.
Prayers for everyone and all our blog friends in the path of the hurricane. Stay safe and God Speed. Keep Creating, Celestina Marie
