My jounal cover is 5 3/8 by 7 1/4 and the paper is 4 3/4 by 6 3/4. I made the journal using chipboard and it's covered with kraft cardstock.
Let's get started! The first step was to stickle gesso around the outside of the journal. I used a paint brush and tapped all around. I'm not worried about the inside area since it will be covered with paper.
After drying the gesso with a heat gun, I was ready to spray!
I started with Tattered Angels Merlot Gold. I'm skipping the middle since it will be covered with paper.
Then some Tattered Angels Kiwi...
And the last layer is Smooch Spritz Mixed Berries. I let it create beautiful drips!
The final project! There is cheesecloth peeking out. The large flowers are from Prima and the beautiful smaller flowers are from Lavish Laces. The flat back pearls on the lace are from Miriam's Crafting Supplies.
I just love how it looks!
