Book Cover

Hi guys, I'm still on my hols so hope this has scheduled like it should have, lol 
For my Tando Creative post today I want to show a Book Cover I have used from the squared off kit,

I started by adhering the sides to the base and then stenciling on the sequin waste and cogs group mask with modeling paste, when dry I adhered the chipboard corners, I then painted the whole thing with white gesso, when dry I added a few bits of dry wall tape for a little added  texture, this I then sprayed with some of the fabulous Deco Art misters, these are awesome so rich in colour, I dried these with my heat tool using a paper towel to blot the colours a little too as this also adds a hint of texture to the design, too finish off the sides I added a little clear stamping with a black archival ink pad and a Kaisercraft texture stamp,
The middle design was made using the book plate which comes with the set as a base then layering up chipboard, metal embellishment,  a flower and a light bulb from hubbies stash, lol
when i had stuck them all down i gave them all a coat of white gesso then when dry painted them with some Inka Gold waxes, the colours weren't quite what i wanted so i then went over the top with some silks paint from my stash, then the letters were given the same clear stamp treatment as on the sides,

I finally added a few micro beads here and there too,
