Hi you all! I thought I would not get anything more finished today, as it was H*******K day! BUT - as I couldn't sleep, I got up very early, did the laundry, mopped the floor, cleaned the bathroom and the kitchen, dusted the furniture and even tidied up - and at 10 o'clock I was finished! This left me with plenty of crafty time. I got out my paints and sprays and went to work. I gave the background a thin coat of metallic paint - which gives a nice shimmer - and then sprayed with various shades of blue and purple , and let it run in different directions. Sorry the photos are bad, I had to put the lights on as it was a dark day.
Then I drew round some of the parts at the bottom, and scribbled around a bit, before adding the beautiful cherub.
And then I decided to cut it up and make a journal out of it. I divided the paper into 2 pieces, and mounted them on to the back of an old painting block. I gave the front and back 2 coats of clear varnish to make them more durable.
I lined the inside covers with some pretty aqua coloured paper from Prima, and made a pocket inside the front cover to hold the two matching book marks.
I cut white paper to size (30x20cm) and bound it all with my BIA. If you're wondering why I used red wires, I didn't have any others or I couldn't find them!
I am linking to Paint Party Friday, hosted as always by Kristin and Eva.
Have a great weekend you all, take care, and thanks a lot for visiting!
