Hello Crafty Friends,
Marie-Christine with you today! I show you the creation of an Art Journal cover. This one is made with “Heartfelt Journal” From Sizzix by Eileen Hull. Once the assembly is complete, you can add interior pages as you go. it will be for another tutorial soon. Here, I used some new stencils, TCW2421 blowing Leaves Sign Stencil and TCW2317 Fence Grid Slimline Stencil.
***THE CRAFTER’S WORKSHOP PROVIDED ME SOME PRODUCTS TO CREATE THIS PROJECT.THE OPINIONS I SHARE ARE SOLELY MY OWN.***
I start by making the background cover with Distress Oxide.
Then, I add a little water with a spray, but really very little, because that could make the board warp.
Once dry I use TCW2421 Blowing Leaves Sign Stencil with Distress Oxide ink and spray some water very lightly before removing the stencil.
I glue printed paper on the back.
I stamp birds on TCW9051 Watercolor Paper and color with watercolor paint.
I adhere masking tape on left side.
Then, I cut out the birds and the title, I glue them on the cover.
I decorate the inside with printed paper and pass the elastic that will be used to add the next pages.
The other side!
Some more details.
Here is the result, thanks for stopping by today, I hope my tutorial inspired you! You can find more details on the creation of this Art Journal with videos, on Eileen Hull’s Facebook page.
