At the start of this year I joined a free-art-journal-workshop on Face Book called Journal 52.What I love about the group is that there is no hurry to complete the weekly prompts, you work at your own pace, upload your photos and continue to be inspired by amazing artists!
The first prompt was to make our journal cover. I wanted this to reflect my artistic style, yet be durable.
Here are the supplies and materials used:
Metallic Pink Dew Drops
Sprinkles Dew Drops
Hillside Mini Dew Drops
Freedom Tear Drops
-Assorted pink, purple and silver rhinestones, gold pearl powder, gold glitter.-Ascending colors of acrylic paint, foam and regular paint brushes, a cup of water, paper plates, work surface mat, journal, chipboard numbers, black permanent pen, black paint, tool for picking up and placing dew drops and rhinestones. -Mod podge, diamond glaze, e6000, canvas cloth, fabric strips, throwaway cup, card stock, pencil, scissors.
When you are done, wait a day for the glue to harden before this next step.
In the meantime, you can glue down your numbers and doodle with the black pen around the "J" and cover.
Then use the e6000 to adhere to the front of the journal, holding down in sections until the glue starts to set.
Thanks for coming by, I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial!
