Journey – Anat Weksler – Altered journal

Hello crafty friends!
Anat here, I have for
you today a Notebook altered with some of Dusty Attic’s gorgeous chipboards.

I wanted to create a
Notebook which can be taken everywhere, and that’s why I gave it a rather flat embellishment. It turn out quite Militar and I loved it.

The first step was to cover
the Notebook with Black Gesso, when dry I glued the 
Jigsaw Pieces Medium and added some texture with paper paste and manuscript Stencil, after drying I covered everything with Black Gesso.

Next I adhered some chipboards cogs from Cogs 2 set, Clockworks chipboard and the word Journey from the Blueprint WordPack. All chipboards were previosly primed with Black Gesso.
To add more interest I glued some metal elements. 

I than started painting the cover with Metal Acrylic Paints and finalized with Green Grey Rust paste and Aged Brass Metalique Wax.

The back cover was painted and embellished the same way:

Here are some more pictures and close-ups:

Hope you enjoyed my project!
Thanks for Stopping by!
