So get that book of yours ready to alter, because your final workshop is a webinar called 3 ways to create beautiful backgrounds in your altered book. Use the button below to get access to the webinar replay.

Please take note of the materials list for our final workshop (it’s a webinar!): paint, paintbrushes, water, paper scraps, glue, ink, stamps, pretty much any mixed media art tools you have, a cutting blade and cutting mat (optional but handy).

As always, if you have a question from today’s workshop, please ask away in the comments below 🙂

    I used a bone folder to smooth out the pages instead of cardboard. Have had trouble with gesso and acrylics sticking to one another once the book is completed – any suggestions?
    Never use that binder before – will have to try it out!

      A matte varnish may help limit the stickiness. I was reading that stickiness may also be related to the proportion of pigment to binder… the more pigment, the less sticky. The other idea I have is to use a clear contact paper to cover the page. I’ve thought about doing that with all my pages so that my work would have less wear and tear when I read through it or share it with others.

      I like the binder. I didn’t have a choice at the time when I bought it, but I’ve found it quite handy.

      Hey Pat, I found something else someone recommended: rub a white wax candle over your pages and let it “cure” for about a week.

    Hi Carrie, I watched the replay of the webinar today and am not sure to find the links that you mentioned. Thanks for your help, I really enjoyed the webinar and am looking forward to altering my book!

      Diane, I have a silly question, can you remind me which links my brain has gone blank!? I want to list them on this page for you.

      • Diane

        No worries, you mentioned links that would be at the end of the webinar but I think I found what I was interested in. I found your Pinterest Board as well as the Adobe Color Picker.
