Journal Covers


I had a little crafty time today and decided to make a start on the grey board covers from my new Journal.  Lots of messy inking and spraying to begin with using Oxides and then I stamped the image onto tissue paper and coloured the reverse with paints.  I applied the tissue with DecoArt Decou-page and then used the medium to seal the cover.

I used the same technique on the back cover.  Now I just need to decorate the inside covers.....

Have a great weekend,
Avril xx

So very pretty Avril and patience as well cutting out the tissue as that's quite a details image. Well done on the Allsorts top pick, we loved it and was perfect for the theme.

Wow, what stunningly beautiful covers! You have created such an elegant design and I love how they came together; I bet you had fun getting messy with those inks/sprays and I'm definitely going to try that technique of painting tissue paper on the reverse 😁. Thanks for the inspiration and wishing you a wonderful weekend! Hugs, Jo x

The cover pages look gorgeous, Avril. I’ve never tried using tissue paper. Sounds delicate working with. But looks stunning!

Enchantingly pretty, Avril - the chalky Oxide backgrounds are lovely, and the images are beautifully painted. I've never properly got the hang of that reverse painting on tissue paper, but you've made it look effortlessly lovely here.
