So many of you have commented on my Artful Recycling journal – Thank You! I had no idea it would hit a chord with so many. I started altering and preparing some of the pages this weekend.
I added flourishes to the underside of the transparency using black StazOn ink.
Added silk flowers to the hand painted background card.
Added a magazine cutout of some roses and used a pink and white Caran D’Arch watercolor crayons to blend into the background.
Gesso’d on side of the Kleenex box side. Notice the texture? I put on the first coat of gesso and dried it with the heat gun and then added a second layer. The second layer created this texture because the first layer was warm from the heat gun. It reminds me of a spider web. I was going to paint another layer on and changed my mind since the texture is so unique.
A piece of junk mail covered up with torn papers and gel matte medium. I then added a layer of yellow orche glaze over that. This is ready to be written on.
More to come later.
I Love, Love, Love this!! I want to make one so bad, but am a little bit intimidated because I don’t have the binding machine. Any suggestions? Your additions to it look beautiful…I love the cover 😀
