Project Instructions

  • 2
    Paint the "pages" on the sides of wood book Buttermilk. When done, dip the brush in a little bit of Burnt Umber. Drag it (long ways) across the surface to make it look more like pages. If the streaks get too dark, go over them wth a little bit of Buttermilk.
  • 3
    Paint the inside of the wood book and the top half of its front cover Baby Blue. Let dry.
  • 4
    Paint the back and the spine of the wood book and lower fourth of its front cover Ocean Blue. Let dry.
  • 5
    Fill in the sections on the front of the wood book Sand.

    Use a pencil to draw some rock shapes on the Grey foam and hill shapes on the Green foam. Cut shapes out.
  • 7
    Use scallop-edge scissors to cut a piece of Primary Red cardstock that will fit on the spine of the wood book. Glue in place.
  • 8
    Print out the desired title of the book on a piece of Light Kraft cardstock (as shown, this is "Elliot's Treasure"), then trim it down to about 3 inch x 4 inch. Tear the edges for a rough shape. Use some watered down Burnt Umber paint on the ripped edges for an aged pirate map look. Glue in desired place.
  • 9
    Glue foam hills and rocks onto the cover.
