All this week we’re crafting with the generous folks at Faber-Castell, and we know you’ll be so excited to see some of the terrific projects we’re creating.
In exactly one week my family and I are leaving for a wonderful 2-week trip to Ireland. Last time I was there I brought a pre-made travel journal to house little bits of memorabilia and document memories and it was one of the better choices I made for that trip! For today's post I am sharing my new journal!
I prepped it by laying down some drywall tape and smearing on wood filler/putty. Then I gesso'd it
Next, I took various Gelatos and made a bunch of circles. At this point I had NO idea where this project was going.
I took a baby wipe and blended the colours together.
Next, I covered most of the area with crackle paint, let that dry, and painted on top with white paint.
Now it's time to get messy!!
I added a whole bunch of other acrylic paints and glazes on top and decided to use one of Stampendous' new Mixed Media stencils that come free in a stamp set.
I used the stencil from the Wired Cling Stamp set and sprayed black paint (mixed with water) through it.
Next I used a Big Brush Pitt Pen to add some depth around the edge. My favorite thing about Pitt Pens are their ability to blend on top of acrylic paint.
Here's the finished cover:
