One of the girls at the store, Karen, is the cutest, most bubbly and sweet young women I've known in a while. She is a very busy mom of three little girls who are into all kinds of things like skating and gymnastics. When she can, Karen finds her creative escape in art journaling. She uses hard cover books and turns them into her journals, and she is really, really good at it, too! And I have been envious of her talent for a while, but the whole 'using an old hard cover book' thing has had me stumped for a while, so I never 'went there'.
Anyway, that was weeks ago, and I actually gesso'd (gessoed?) and painted the outside of the book, and the first couple of pages in the book a while back, but never did a page ... until today. It's not great. It's not even good. I found out I need to get a better quality of black ink pad because the one I used ran really bad when I went over it with Mod Podge! And I wish I had left the clock off of it, but it is what it is .....
I used Anita's acrylic paint, an old bottle of shiny 'puffy' paint for the white line, washi tape for the pennant flag, a couple of old stamps, and coated it all with Mod Podge.
I love that washi tape! I outlined the 'pennants' with a black Micron .05 marker.
