Digging through my crafty stash trying to think of a project that I could make quickly (as I always leave things to that Crisis Crafting moment…lol) to put forward to Visible Image’s recent DT Call (sadly I did not make it but boy was the standard high when you see who did get in! – check out their blog for details).
So I did this for a bit of fun. I used my old 2012 diary rather than bin it together with some gesso etc. So here is briefly how I did it.
I stared with my diary…..
..and gave it a coat of Heavy Black Gesso to cover the gold writing up as the white gesso wasn’t doing it for me!
I then gathered up all my bits and pieces, die cuts, stencils etc and added them to the covers. Next gesso’d it all white ready to add my colours.
Now I started to build up the colours with paints and sprays.
I used Stampboard for my main cover feature and punched holes down the side that were tied through with ribbon and knotted. This was glued to the front cover.
Added a couple of stamped images and Voila!! Finished.
We hope you have been inspired.
