Time to deface some books, folks!
*Rubs hands in anticipation*
I haven’t had access to my darling books all summer, but now I’m back home and therefore also back to business. :)
This time, I decided to go to town on all three books in the Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard trilogy by Rick Riordan. It’s one of my absolute favourite series, and I’ve been meaning to personalise my copies in some way for ages.
I had a couple different ideas for what I wanted to do, some more complicated than others, but in the end I decided to go with a quite simple motive on top of a kind of space-y background, and I’m very happy with how it turned out. :)
For this little project, I mainly used acrylic paint, a sponge, and a silver coloured gel pen.
But without further ado, here’s the result:
And that’s it!
I had a really good, though admittedly sometimes frustrating (trees are the bane of my existence), time painting these, and I’ve really missed doing art stuff this summer. Hopefully I’ll have time for things like these during this school year (though I’m not feeling optimistic).
I hope you enjoyed this, and as always, I encourage you to try defacing your own books in some way, whether it be paint, text, or something entirely different. It’s so much fun, and so far I haven’t regretted a single one of my projects. :)
