Journal cover

Evening crafters, on Monday at craft club we were decorating our journals. We started with building lots of layers, which we covered in Gesso. Once dry we added elements to create the look we wanted, and then another coat of gesso.


That's as far we got at club, but tonight I started to paint it. I used fresco acrylic paints from Paper Artsy in these colours. The paint gave it lots of depth.







I then dried this with a heat tool. Once dry I sprayed it with dylusions inks? I dried each colour before adding the next. To add some Shine I used cosmic shimmer. once dry I used primary elements from Luminarte in greens and blues. 









Again I dried this off and then the fun started with using treasure gold in these colours.











Thank you for visiting, I hope you come back soon.
