Art Journal Cover - Imagine Dream Create by Farrel Tailor

Hello Colour Blast Peeps!!!!
I'm back with another project and I'm hoping you like it as much as I enjoyed created it.

 I have wanted to cover my Dylusions 8x8 Art Journal for so long now and I decided to give it a go and this is how it turned out!!!

I started with covering my elastic with masking tape and then applying a coat of white gesso.

I then stamped onto some tissue paper with black archival ink and while the gesso was still wet, I tore up the pieces of paper for my background (script stamp) and added it to the cover.

I then used a fan paint brush and applied Peacock Colour Shimmer Dust by dusting it over the area I wanted coloured and sprayed with water. I then did the same thing with Duke Colour Shimmer Dust and dried with a heat gun. 

I then added some splatters of Rainforest Colour Spray and spritzed with water. Next I added the butterfly tissue paper. I wanted to add some more sparkle to the cover so I mixed some glitter with Impasto Paste and used a bubble stencil to apply several times.

I felt like I was missing something and then thought I needed to add some more green tones, so I decided to use Lush Colour Shimmer Dust.

Once I was happy with the colour layers I added some stamping using black archival ink. I also used Road Base Colour Spray and the lid of the bottle to add some small circles.

Last of all I added my metal words with strong glue and presto I have art journal cover done!! Here are some more pictures of the journal cover.

I hope you enjoyed my share and be sure to check out the process video on the Colour Blast YouTube Channel.

Until next time - Happy Scrappin' xx
