Altered book cover | Architextures 

The 7gypsies Architextures are finally available to purchase almost all over the world and being a member of the CCB Creative Crew means that I got to play with the goodies before most. 


As amazing as each of the pieces is separately, the elements work together as a system where you don’t really need much else to be able to create a variety of textures and dimensions of mixed media without the mixed media… my sceptical mind would not have that but I decided to give it a go… 


Following the original idea, I put away my usual stencils and texture mediums; I grabbed an old book and focused on using only Architextures and some Tattered Angels paints… Oh, how fun!!! I am pretty good with words but… I am so glad that I made a VIDEO TUTORIAL to document it! 

It was a completely new experience for me where using layers and variety of Architextures elements I achieved the result I could only achieve with wet media before – the rub-ones are glorious and the bases are my new favourite 7gypsies product! My verdict – you have to try them!!!
