The Journey awakens the Soul – Karan Gerber

 Hello Friends, welcome to my blog today as I share a project that i created for Dusty Attic. 

I have an altered mini album cover to share using a black foundation album 2.0 from 49 and market. 
I began by using a stencil from Prima and applied texture paste in areas on the cover to add some detail.  If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love time pieces, and anything to do with time. So Many of my projects will have clocks on them, and this one falls right in that category. 

I didnt want to leave the spine uncovered, so I added the Fancy Trim in the middle of the spine. I continued to adhere all my chipboard pieces. I added a resin handle that I had made along with metal heart and small heart with wings. 
Then I gessoed everything with black gesso. 

I went over with metallique paint, Light Patina which when dry, turned this blueish color. And resembles denim.  I detailed some of he shadows with Burnt Sienna Fluid Acrylic. and then lightly went over with gold wax using my fingers. 

I added an old metal trinket i had in my metal box, “The Journey Awakens the Soul” Which i felt was fitting for this project. 

There is the album full view, I hope you have enjoyed my project share for you today.  

Here are the chipboard pieces I used.
