Then I set out on my favorite part... deconstruction!
And promptly discovered a bit of a problem -it appears the vinyl I just removed served a purpose.... It held the cover to the spine, and the spine to the back. So I headed to the fabric store for some upholstry fabric and fabric glue.
But before I left, I sprayed the covers with several colors of metallic maya mists (cherry and yellow), added a little suede glimmer mist, and some green metallic maya mist. I left it out to dry in the sun and came back to find a lovely aged copper patina. I wish I could capture it digitially, but the covers have a really cool "depth" to the color.

Oh... and would you believe those roses used to be dusty pink?
Stay tuned for the inside pages... now that the class is over I haven't been inspired to work them. *wink*
