So what are they you may ask?
Well, first of all, I have become addicted to Midori size notebooks, so this is what this is. They are inserts for a Mindori Travelers Journal, and I love putting these together using the Eileen Hull Journal die. If you want to know how to do this, - here is a brilliant video that explains it. This one is going to be used for handwriting practice, - it has squared paper inside.
Second up, are Tim Holtz Oxide Inks and
last but not least Decoart Fluid Acrylic paints and various sprays, and it is these latter two that I used for this cover.
Below a quick step by step:
I added some texture paste through a couple of stencils to a plain Midori travelers journal insert.
Next I covered it with gesso, some crackle paste and three colours of Oxides, I also used a tiny bit of Paynes Grey acrylic paint around the edges.
Then I added a variety of sprays and the whole thing came to life.
Finally I highlighted the raised bits with some Distress Crayons and then with the help of a glue stick and some foil added a few bits of gold glimmer here and there.
Below a few close ups still:
Well, that's it for today, and like usual,
