Like many of us, I love art journalling and my project is one day going to become the cover of a journal.....
I used two different Mixed Media Grey Board Blanks. The base is the Door Shaped Grey Board, - the inner layer is an Arch Shaped Grey Board.
I started with the outer layer:
I added a thinnish layer of decoart texture past around the edges and while still wet, stamped into it with a text stamp. I then covered it with a thick layer of decoart black gesso.
As you can see, the text is not particularly clear but it does add extra texture.
Next colour was added with various decoart acrylic paints, I kept changing my mind but in the end landed up with a patina colour the match the paper I wanted to use as the background to my arch shape.
Here you can see how the colour helps to bring out the texture a bit more.
The arch shaped panel was created with the help of stamps, paints, a vintage photo and some scraps of a paper serviette.
The word Journal was added, from the Olde English Create your Own Word MDF Wood Font
And finally I finished it by adding three of the Art Deco Ornament Wood Shapes, I used Style 6, but there are many different styles available.
I am going to use another arch shape as the template for my journal pages and another door shape for the back cover, and will probably show you those at some point on my own blog.
Meanwhile thank you for visiting today and see you next time!
Have a creative week
