Journal Cover

Hey there crafters.
We have had a great break over the holidays but now we over at Imagine if... are back into it creating projects to inspire using all the awesome craft supplie from Imagine if...
To kick this new year off I have used stencils, and chipboard pieces to create the cover of My Art Journal for 2015
I prepped the cover with gesso and then added a bit of colour ready to do some stencilling with ink and also some texture paste.  These stencils are available on the Imagine if website.

I then gesso'ed a selection of chipboard pieces so they would be able to take layers of sprays and paint.

After arranging them how I liked them I adhered them to the cover.  Layering them creates some interesting textures and dimension.  So much fun.
Making sure all is dry I then added some more embellishments from my stash and started the process of adding colour upon colour...acylic, and sprays and repeating all these steps until getting to a stage I liked.  There are no rules here just play.

So there you have it the cover of my 2015 Art Journal and it was sooooo much fun.  Please check out the Imagine if website for any of the stencils and chipboard pieces you see in this project and also comment below to be in to win A pack of various chipboard pieces from Imagine if....
Thank you

  1. That's lovely Tash. Love how you layered them up in the center and I love the colours used.
    I checked out their web page again and it's so good to see all the new things online. Now to decide what I can afford.
