The Book of Layers

This book was a commission and it grew out of a tag I shared on  my blog www.weekdayhome.blogspot.co.uk.  I've called it the Book of Layers because as you will see it is made of loads and loads of layers!    The antiquing creams used are designed to be applied, dried and wiped back to expose the colours below.  If you then seal that layer, it will protect your work below and you can continue adding colours and wiping back.  
 The end effect is one of a book looking aged and worn.  It's hard to remember this is just card.

All the details of how to make the layers and the paints, creams and waxes used are listed in the video below.  Enjoy :)
