An altered journal book cover...



Altered-book-for-Zeus-and-Zoe

I have been having fun creating covers for my art journals. This is the one I made for my niece. Lots of vintage goodies from the Zeus and Zoe store and a window to house them. [Love that it sits pretty on a bookshelf.]



The texture on the cover was created with an Art Deco stencil and Golden glass bead gel and paint. I finished with some silver PearlEx for an iridescent sheen. 


A window was cut to create a little interest as well as provide "space" for some dimensional embellishments.

P/s: Happy weekend friends! :) Come play along with my guest Anupama's banner challenge, LESSology Challenge #3: What's in your toolbox? and Zeus and Zoe's March challenge.
