Hi Everyone! Today I’m going to show you how I decorated my new art journal. This one is a small journal that I found for $1. I painted the cover and all the pages with TCW White Gesso. I found a piece of book paper and used the stencils below to create collage paper to add to the cover.
TCW807s – Script Dots
TCW764s – Number Scramble
TCW762s – Shapes
TCW834s – Stone Increase
I adhered the paper to the journal with TCW Gel Medium Matte. When it dried I added paint and sprayed it with water. I was having fun so I covered up most of the collage paper.
When it dried I added Number Scramble and Script Dots stencils to the cover.
I also found some tissue paper that I created with Stone Increase and added that to the front cover to finish it off.
Here is what it looks like closed.
I’ve already started some of the pages inside. I think I’m going to continue using the same colors. I love working small because sometimes I just don’t have a lot of time. Do you like to work small?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
