Began with a book from the Dollar Store.
Bulked up the spine with a piece of paper towel tube.
Added more detail by applying a couple beads of hot glue.
Applied paper towel with decoupage glue
making sure to create lots wrinkles for texture.
Allowed to dry overnight.
Brushed on a light coat of Gesso.
I didn't have black gesso, so used my white Gesso
After dry, painted with black acrylic paint.
Applied a sticky eyeball.
Then created the eyelids around the eyeball with
more paper towel and decoupage glue.
Repeat the Gesso, black acrylic paint steps.
Then began dry-brushing the entire book with
brown acrylic paint.
Love Love Loooove all the textures.
Embellished and Done!
