So thankful for my studio space with the internet right there so I could do this. Effy decorated her cover on YouTube and chatted away as she did so, while we worked on our own journal covers. This wasn't a teaching lesson, just a shared experience. Here's what happened at my place. I'm working on a small Dylusions journal - pages are 5" x 8"
Because my word for 2017 is SHINE I decided to start with a base layer of gold, followed swiftly by some stencilling with a metallic purple
Decided I might as well decorate inside the cover as well so here's where I cleaned excess paints off
More stencils with metallics and some lovely star tissue was applied
It needs some dark
Missing a couple of my fav's - this paint and stencil...especially in combination
Adore what it does here
Wanted to add my word to the cover, but don't like this
Swiftly fixed by some more of that lovely serviette
This is where I left it to dry completely before I decide on the finishing touches
More in love with my inside cover than my outer at this stage, but it was time to go and celebrate New Year's Eve at the beach! My other happy place ♥♥♥
As you can see, my cover needed more SHINE ♥. The back just needed some tape on the edge (click on any photo to see it larger)
And the front needed tape, white Paint Sharpie pen, and gold sakura gelly roll pen.
And my word ♥
Inside front cover didn't need much but I am loving this just as much as the outside
Close-ups - envelope open
Really surprised how well that red tape on the edges worked...loving my butterfly with gold
Can't wait to use this. Sharing soon what I'm going to do inside....
