Art Journal Re-Vamp

 I decided to give my Art Journal a re-vamp, when I did the cover originally it was black with metallic blue and silver, and very dark.
So after a coat of GeeSoGood Gesso and adding lots of elements that were left over from a Finnabair workshop I did at IndigoBlu earlier this year, along with a few flowers and buttons from my stash. I decided this time around I wanted a pastel colours for my journal.
  I used several layers of IndigoBlu's Cottage Garden paints in the gorgeous Grandma's Teacup and Townhouse Teal shades, diluted with water and spritzed onto the cover. Then after drying spritzed again with the gorgeous Snow White metallic paint, for a pearl sheen along the right hand side.
To finish off I applied a little Vodka Martini metallic paint using a dry brush to the edges of some of the embellishments, so when the light catches them they have a beautiful metallic lustre.

So there's my re-vamped cover and I promise to fill the rest of the pages and share them :)

Happy Crafting
