Jess here with an altered library pocket for you.
I lined the inside part of the pocket with a page from an old bookk. Once my page was glued down I started to add on acrylic paint with a dry paintbrush. The photos make the paint look all brown, but it is a lovely shimmery copper color.
I stenciled on a few designs using a permanent ink.
I also added bits of washi tape and marker splatters.
I set this part aside to work on the outside of the pocket.
I used a piece of scrap paper to cover the front and I sanded the edges.
I used a sentiment from the Valentine's of Youth collage sheet. I snipped it in half, inked it, and scribbled a black line around the edge. I used the reverse side of the paper I covered the pocket with to back the sentiment. A little bit of ricrac finished the front.
This lovely lady is from a Glitz paper pack. I glittered the big heart and let it dry. I took a small heart embellishment and colored it red using alcohol ink to add to her crown.
I added her to the inside pocket.
There she is the Queen of Hearts.
You can see I snuck in a tiny bit of red punchinella after I thought I was done! This is why I love mixed media, you can just keep layering and adding.
