Mixed Media Projects by Solange Marques

Hello to everyone. Here is Solange Marques and it's a pleasure to be back on the Imaginarium team.  
I love ID chipboard! 
Today I'll share with you some project with the beautiful ID chipboard!
I love mixed media and art journal, then I prepared a cover for my next art journal using several chipboard and metal pieces:

I glue down the chipboards on the cover and I apply acrylic gesso on all of the cover. After, I use some colors of glimmer spray and finally I apply copper paste on some places.

My second projet is an altered book. My granddaughter is in love with fare tales and the princess, then I made this book for her:

I apply acrylic gesso and copper paste on the frame and I made a patina on it.

Some pages of my altered book:
