Inspirational Journal cover

Hello Everyone

For my latest project I have been playing with several mixed media products. I intend this piece to be the cover for an art journal.
All the products used are from Kaszazz.

I have based it on a chipboard  6x6 drilled album cover. The background is created using Distress paints in Stormy sky and bundled sage then brushed over with gesso. Patterned paper strips were added using glue and seal then more gesso. The crumbling brick wall is gesso sponged over the brick stencil, then when dry, sponged with fired brick and walnut stain distress inks. The images were then stamped using images from Silhouette leaves, Happy butterflies, Net, Springtime and the vine from Dream, believe, achieve sets and archival inks. Washi tape butterflies and inspiration were added. Sentiments from Affirmations were stamped and cut out, the bird from Inspirational flight was stamped on to gessoed card then cut out, and all added using glue and seal. The whole piece was then brushed over with glue and seal.
I hope this inspires you to play with your products.
Till next time- be happy crafting
