WOYWW #199-Mess & Ruin

 Hi, for details of WOYWW please pop over to the lovely Julia's for all the details.
Well this is my messy desk this morning after finally finishing my Book of Ruination, an on line course I have been doing with Andy Skinner, expert of all things paint etc.  The finshed book is resting on my Andy Bible of techniques, the little purple looking square is a test piece.     After using paint , Matt medium, masking fluid, embossing and lots more , the following pics are the result.
 The cover is very tactile, I love it it.
 I added a title to mine.
The whole thing.  Hope you like have a good day.


  1. What a gorgeous book! I like Andy's work, he has great ideas. Thanks for sharing and Happy Woyww Liz @ 69

  2. Totally fabulous! I signed up, and haven't even started ruinating yet - this is great inspiration to pull my socks up and get on with it! Thanks for your visit, and happy WOYWW!
