The Documented Life Inner Cover
One of the art journal groups that I will be working with in 2015 is The Documented Life Project (DLP). I'm not going to do my cover now, but I did the inside cover. I put down gesso mixed with a bit of pink acrylic, then I added Gelatos in pink, purple, and two blues. Using stencils, I erased some of the Gelatos with a baby wipe. I had a brown paper bag from Hallmark with just the right words, so I cut then out with a deckle scissors and glued on. I added some washi tape down the side and finished with a coating of Grumbacher Gloss Medium & Varnish. Then, I called Hallmark because I was worried a bit about copyright issues before I posted this. I got a very clear NO, so I can't post the finished page. (I used the program Paint to "erase" the words on the cover and added some bubbles. Looks like a camel on the top LOL! It actually is a great page in person even though it looks a bit silly here.
