Anything but cute -- Grungy Love

For the challenge on Anything but Cute, I have made a cover for the book that fits in the altered heart box ( post below this one) I started off by covering the right side with gold crackle paste. and the rest with gesso to seal the chipboard. I then added the various embellishments and painted them with gesso. When it was all dry I painted it with pink, purple and turquoise metallic paint. The pink roses were added afterwards.



I am also entering this in  new challenge blogs that I came across.
