Mixed Media Notebook Cover

Updated: Jul 24, 2019

Hi all!

Today I would like to share this fun and quick project made using your favourite Andy Skinner's stamps and of course Decoart products.

To start with, I've primed my journal cover with black gesso. For this project I've used Decoart Media Fluid Acrylics in Metallic Gold, Primary Yellow and Decoart Americana Premium Acrylics in Yellow Green Light and Sap Green.

I've squeezed a few dots of paint on the craft mat and started rolling my brayer to get an even, thin coat, then run it through the surface. I've repeated this step with all of the colours few times until I was satisfied with the background. i've also added a light wash of Burnt Umber around the edges and book plate which was painted in gold first.

Once your background was dry I've stamped my chosen images and words using black Archival Ink.

These embellishments were made with Shrink paper (stamp, cut out, shrink and tint with media fluid wash) Decoart Heavy Gel Medium was used to stick the metal pull to the cover and little book plate at the bottom.

Thank You for stopping by, I hope You've enjoyed my post.
