Today I will be sharing another set of my journal covers.
Last week I shared that several of my projects start with a base layer of paint. This is light blue paint in two different hues spread with a paint scraper both vertically and horizontally to add some texture and contrast.
I added red paint by using a vintage doily as a stencil. Then, I added red paint along the edges...again just adding depth and contrast to the piece.
I added my stamp and signature...along with a few doodles and it is finished.
The front cover started with a red base. Then, I added light blue, using only the edge of a scraper. Finally, I added some hand-stamped coffee filters along the edge. This was the background of my cover.
I added a painted doily and some black text scrapbook paper.
Then, I stamped and doodled to add more texture. I also went around the black paper with oil pastel. I love the way it highlights the piece.
Final journal covers!
Thanks for stopping by!
