As promised—my artist’s journal cover to date!

The journal was constructed from a pad of watercolor paper that was originally 9×12.  I cut the pages and the covers in half, then punched and bound them with my Bind it All, 1″ brown Orings.  Then the fun began–I painted with this gorgeous blue/teal acrylic craft paint–I think it is Caribbean Coast and just began to stamp directly onto it.  The lady and the panel on the right are on beige cardstock and adhered with Modge Podge.  The flowers and brad are Hot off the Press.  The sparkle flowers are Darice, self adhesive flower gems.  The word “ART” was chipboard letters from K&Company.  The inks are Stazon Jet Black, Archival (Ranger) Sepia and (Ranger) Adirondack Eggplant.  (Doing this from memory with assistance from my 4 yo so it might get an edit soon;)!)  What do ya think?
