The cover of my 2015 journal!

Hi everyone,
I alter the cover of calendar to create a journal for the new year.



I applied a layer of Gesso on the background and colored the background with watercolored effect by spraying some beautiful new and old sprays  then spraying with water . I really like my new sprays - Lindy's two-toned sprays, they have a base color, with a different shimmer color. The texture on the background of this page was made using Stencil and Texture Paste.

Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
