Firstly gather some scraps leftover from other projects, we all have a few floating around. Using Multi Medium Matte from Ranger, glue these pieces down onto a A5 piece of Chipboard. I have used 3000 GSM for this project.
After gluing down the original layer decide of you need something else, all we are doing here is providing a base layer to create some texture for our project. The beauty of Multi Medium Matte is it dries clear and flat. Therefore you can create as many layers as you like without thick glue layers in between.
When that dries (apply the glue sparingly and it should only take a few minutes) we need to Gesso the cover.
Next we need to choose what colours to use – pick 4 or 5 that will co-ordinate together well
