Momo the Lion Pg, Take Two

February 12, 2012

Now here’s the rest of the directions for my chunky book submission…the back side first.

After adding color to my photo and letting it dry completely I glued it onto a recycled food box. I purposely let the advertisement show on the back because I like it! It give it a kind of pop art feel.

Momo The Lion Back Side

The fluff is Fantasy Fiber from Art Glitter. I made a 4×4″ square on my board (the red lines) so I would know how big to make my fiber bed. Put baker’s parchment paper over it and laid a thin layer of Fantasy Fiber with 3 different colors.

More parchment paper on top and iron at a medium high setting for a second or two.

Here’s a nice fiber sheet ready to be glued onto the back.

Then I glued on my info sheet with the original photo of Momo to the backside as shown at top of post. Here’s the original photo –  I call it Red Momo.

She looks sweet and harmless…

Now, I got ahead of my self a little bit. You can make the fiber back ground when ever you want, but if you want an easy application of glitter, do that first before gluing the fiber on. So that’s what I did. I used my Designer Dries Clear adhesive with our fine metal tip attached to get thin lines of glue. I outlined the border first and dunked it into Art Glitter’s Ultrafine Transparent #210 Fossil. Then I drew in more whiskers with the glue and sprinkled on same glitter color. Bling!


She thinks she’s a lion, so why not make her one?

I’ll have photos of the finished Chunky Book soon. Great stuff!
