This year I'm taking Effy Wild's year-long bundle of Moonshine and Book of Days 2018. My main art work will go in my altered art journal which still has a few spreads to go
I will decorate the cover when I am finished the journal. As well as that I'm going to have lots of notes in our Moonshine class which need to go in a binder, and I also need to have a new Inner Work Journal (part 3). Decided to decorate both covers together. My Inner Work journal is just an A4 notebook with a hard cover which already had some lovely butterflies on it and I am recycling an old binder.
I decided to start with paper collage to cover some of the original binder cover, and to just apply a layer of clear gesso over the butterflies to make it easier to apply other media.
Then it was time to start applying colour - cheap but lovely coloured acrylic paints and some modeling paste through a stencil on the binder. Then I added sprays and drippage
One of the reasons I love to keep this blog is that I can look back on projects and see the steps I took. This time I referred back to the cover I made in January
and remembered how much I enjoyed using the serviettes. I liked them on the binder
with lovely Pebeo iridescent blue black
SHINE as my word for 2018.
Now I'm all set with my journals for 2018 - can't wait for the new classes to start
