Pale blue French decorative books

I decided to branch out from pink…so here’s my first batch of pale blue books.

These are rescued hardcovers (25 cents each!) from Goodwill. I sprayed them aqua, then mottled them with white gesso and sprayed with a satin clear coat. For the spines, I used vintage French writing I found, which was already on pale blue paper–so I just printed them out and modpoged the spines. My next batch will be lavender–but outdoor spraying season is over here in Minnesota–so it may have to wait until spring!
