2017 art journal cover

blank art book, distress ink pads, Graphic 45 Ladies Diary stamps, golden heavy gel, clock stencil, glitter glue, gold paint, liquid pearls

I make an art journal every year.  This is my new one for 2017

Cut beige card stock to fit the cover, before gluing  it down on the cover of the blank book, I prepare the collage.  Take 4 colors of Tim Holtz distress ink pads and wipe them across the card stock.  Spritz with water and wipe down with paper towel.  Dry cover.  Take gold paint on finger and smudge around.  Stamp bottom of the cover with swirls and keys.  Stamp , color and cut out two ladies from the Ladies Diary stamp collection, use liquid pearls to highlight buttons on dress , hat and flowers.  Use clock stencil on top of cover and fill with heavy gel to make a 3D stencil, when dry rub to highlight the clock with black ink pad.  When everything is dry glue finished collage on to the cover of the blank book.  Write My Journal and 2017 in black sharpie and run sharpie around the edge of the cover.  done
