Hello TCW Fans!!!
Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media art journal cover I created using some amazing TCW products. Just a warning though, you may want to grab a cuppa before reading as there are a few process steps lol.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
To start the background I applied TCW 9001 White Gesso using a dry paint brush. Then to blend the edges a little bit, I used a baby wipe. Once the gesso was dry (which doesn’t take long as it’s only a light coverage) I then used TCW202s Mini Harlequin stencil along with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste using a silicone brush.
I then dried the modeling paste using my heat gun. Once that was dry I then used some 13arts Water based inks mixed with water in colours – Yellow, Scarlet and Bordeaux. Again used the heat gun to dry and then applied some stamping using black archival ink, a Stampers Anonymous stamp and a Darkroom Door texture stamp.
Once I was happy with the background I then covered some Dusty Attic chipboard with TCW9001 White Gesso and TCW9015 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Black Licorice
Next I lightly sprinkled some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Bavarian Blue and just lightly sprayed with water. I then coloured the cheesecloth with Colour Blast Shimmer Dust – Cobalt and Navy and some water. And now to assemble!!! As you can see I have cut the painted black doily chipboard in half, added the cheesecloth and some art stones. I adhered all my pieces using iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive
Last of all I adhered the Fleur de Lis chipboard along with the black title chipboard in the center.
Thank you for dropping by and I truely hoped you have enjoyed this tutorial.

So very lovely. the accents of chipboard make it come alive. the stenciling creates a perfect backdrop.
Love your cover Farrel, especially the book name lol xx
