Altered journal cover

I thought my art journal deserves a new cover. So that’s how it looks like now.

Journal cover

First I applied some modeling paste, that I covered with black gesso. I painted the texture with bronze color. Now a close-up of the front:

An altered paper ring, some Cartographer paper, an old key, metal embellishments and other found objects. Finally a layer of dylusion ink for some shine.

    Love the cover Ruth- especially the black gesso as a base makes your elements really stand out- and love the cartography paper! xo

  2. Glad I found this post/blog. Makes me want to go glue things to other things.
