Today was one of those days I just wanted to stay in bed with the covers pulled over my head, snuggling up close to my two four-legged boys. I needed a day of rest, but with Art Every Day Month, that couldn't happen.
Way back on Day 1 of Art Every Day Month, or AEDM, I created this layered book cover.
I had hoped to add some German scrap to the top and bottom, then decided it didn't fit. Although they are a bit plain,
at least now you can see how I used the backgrounds I made on Day 6 of AEDM. These are going to some friends who live out of state and have never met Bleubeard. Although I always try to make art by Bleubeard and Elizabeth, today Bleubeard was not included. I added a foam tree as well as my "Created by" label I painted, then cut using ProvoCraft decorative scissors.
This is Day 19 of Art Every Day Month or AEDM, and I finished making three book covers and added the backs to all four.
Thanks everyone for your continued support of my art each day this month. It is always appreciated more than you will ever know. Now I'm heading to bed to get rid of this cough and achy feeling.
