today I am here to share with you a quick little project I made as a gift for someone special using just a few items
Please note that although i have received some of the products used to create this project from some great companies, the opinions I share are solely my own.
so I started out by cutting out a journal using some paper leather. i then cut out and placed in the center a dragonfly and along the edge some gears. next i die cut another dragonfly and laid it over the first. I then laid my stencil over top and using a palette knife applied some modeling paste. This is when i removed my top dragonfly as it was only used to cover the bottom one to protect it. once that was totally dried I covered the whole front of my journal using black gesso.
Now my journal cover is ready to have some colour added to it…so i began by applying some metallic paint in various colours over the entire thing
and then followed that up by using some metallic waxes, varying colours with that as well. as i was totally involved and fingers covered in paint and wax i missed taking pictures but basically i just kept adding until i was happy with the colouring. as a final touch i i layered some clear dragonfly wings before adding a couple of chitchat stickers to my journal cover.
so here you have it.. some closeups of this project
and the total front cover.
Remember, we would love to see what you create with The Crafters Workshop Stencils and Mediums.
