I'm going on a new journey and lovin' it!! I started my first art journal...this one's for you Papallon:))
I just had to re-do the front, back and inside covers to make it my own. I applied gesso, then re-applied it again with a tattered angels stencil(layered it on really thick). I took another stencil that I've had forever with a brick pattern on it and applied more gesso. Then I added some buttons and trim, gessoed it again...love that stuff...hehe. then I sprayed various colors of glimmer mist and did a little sanding!
For the back cover, I painted it with gesso, then some dark brown acrylic paint added some medium crackle then painted it with antique white. I took t!m's flourish stamp and emobossed with copper embossing powder. It looks so cool!
The inside covers are covered with K&C Life's Journey(convenient huh?) Love, love that paper!
For my first page I dropped different colors of acrylic paint then spread it with a old gift card. I took another tattered angels stencil and traced it, took a heart stamp from Inkadoo and embossed it in the middle of my traced heart...hope you can see how that turned out. I typed out my title with my trusty 'ole typewriter...yes I own one and love it! Just had to dust it off a wee bit..hehe. It says Listen to your heart.
Well, I won't keep you here any longer...I do enjoy your visits!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Hope you had a super weekend:)
