Important Stuff Journal cover – Farrel Tailor (Challenge Inspiration)

Hello Everyone!!!
Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media art journal cover I created using some amazing TCW products and Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces. My inspiration for this cover is from the Dusty Attic September Mood Board.

To start the background I applied TCW 9001 White Gesso using a dry paint brush. Then to blend the edges a little bit, I used a baby wipe. Once the gesso was dry (which doesn’t take long as it’s only a light coverage) I then used TCW202s Mini Harlequin stencil along with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste using a silicone brush.

I then dried the modeling paste using my heat gun. Once that was dry I then used some 13arts Water based inks mixed with water in colours – Yellow, Scarlet and Bordeaux. Again used the heat gun to dry and then applied some stamping using black archival ink, Stampers Anonymous stamp and Darkroom Door texture stamp.

Once I was happy with the background I then covered my small doily from Doily #5 with TCW9001 White Gesso and covered the small Fleur de Lis with TCW9015 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Black Licorice

Next I lightly sprinkled some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Bavarian Blue and just lightly sprayed with water. I then coloured the cheesecloth with Colour Blast Shimmer Dust – Cobalt and Navy and some water. And now to assemble!!! As you can see I have cut the painted black doily chipboard in half, added the cheesecloth and some art stones. I adhered all my pieces using iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive

Last of all I adhered the Fleur de Lis chipboard along with the black title from Wordpl@y #3 black chipboard in the center.
