Art Journal Cover

I saw a challenge over at Anything but A Card called hit the Books.
The challenge

Hit the Books: create a project based on a favorite book, or alter a book, use book pages on your project, create a book mark, a book cover, make a tote, etc. JUST REMEMBER... create anything EXCEPT a card for this challenge :)

I was inspired to decorate the cover of my art journal which is just a random old paperback book I got at the library sale. I wanted to use a mix of old alphas for dimension and modeling paste for texture.

I was actually painting during Tracy's Mixed Media Monday which is where the colors came from. Obviously my work took a different turn than hers. I do like it though and am pleased now to be able to grab this book to journal in!

Products used: Deco art paints, TCW Mini Chevron stencil, Spackle, Faber Castell Glaze


  1. This is a fabulous art journal, will be inspired every time you use it! I am so glad to see you over her joining me in the challenges, it's a fun place! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  2. I'd love to see how you added modeling paste on this, it is truly artistic in every sense of word, very cool!

  3. This is wonderful! I love the colors and texture!
    Thanks so much for joining us at Anything But a Card!!


Happy New Year
