art journal *Shimmerz*

After seeing all the gorgeous art journal pages I decided to give it a go too.
Don't have anything to show you yet but next year I will try to make some pages.
Made the front cover of this A4 journal with lots and lots of Shimmerz!! 

A used my favorite technique to start with:
Glueing paper kitchen towel on the journal with gesso.
Embellished with lots of flowers, dew drops, beads, buttons, metal pieces and a metal frame.
Spraying and painting with all the colors and added some water to let them run.
And the last step: a coat with gesso for the finishing touch.

For this journal I used the following colors:
Coloringz: No yoking
Spritz: Bed of Roses
Spritz: Plum Pudding
Vibez: Princess
Vibez: Jeni B Blue
Blingz: Flashee Fushia
Shimmerz: Sunny
Shimmerz: Magenta
Shimmerz: Key Lime
Shimmerz: Coffee

Here are some close-ups:
Some chipboard letters.

Some dew drops as an extra element.

Using up some flowers from my stash.

Added some small pearls for extra texture.

This gorgeous metal frame was found at a local flea market.

Chipboard letters from Imaginarium Design.

An extra touch with gesso using a sponge.

Randomly splattered some paint.

I love the way the light touch of gesso shows the cracks of the paper towel.

Enjoy your day!
