I wanted to try something with gesso and glimmer mist to make a really shabby chic look. I decided to take a simple 6x4 inch journal and see what I could do with it.
I decided to Gesso all the edges of the Journal and all metal and other embellishments first. What a mess right!! Then I went over the edges of the journal again with white Acrylic Paint.
I then chose some paper from Prima - Rondelle Collection for the front and back of the journal and put gesso on the edges of the paper too. See I told you I wanted to use Gesso!! I then stitched around the edges of the paper with my sewing machine.
Prima Chevron stencil and put some modelling paste on it. And backed it with some dark pink card.
I added lace, a string of pearls, flowers etc. and a Prima Shabby Chic Window - then guess what I did......
After all that Gesso, I sprayed here and there with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Key Lime Pie and Vintage Pink. I also added a white Muslin ribbon, twine and a key, some Cheesecloth and little gems here and there. Even the little padlock has some cheesecloth, gems and a little rose. And I put a touch of glitter on the flowers, its hard to see in the photos, but there is glitter. Oh I nearly forgot the Sweet Prima light bulb -Junkyard Findings. I hope you like the finished product, thanks for stopping by to have a look. Until next time, TTFN. xx
