It's Crew Member Wednesday again and today Hermien is showing how she turned a brochure she received in the mail into a lovely little art journal! How cool is that?!!
This is our last month in our house, we are moving in april! Facebook knows about these plans because there are lots of advertisements for new furniture popping up and thats why I choose a little interieur decorating flyer I received in my IRL maibox to turn into a small journal.
I like to show you how to make this and what you can do with one background technique.
At first I removed the staples and pages and gessoed the whole cover roughly, dried and used an old creditcard to spread some paint. Then I glued some washi tape and stamped the “flower” on top and at the bottom (later on I decided to emboss the bottom one, and to cover up the top one with a shiny piece of chocolate wrapping).
Time for those lovely tulips! I heat embossed the stamp on the front and back and started painting (front) turkois around the tulips and “flower” so the tulips pop a little extra..at the back I only outlined the tulips with a charcoal pencil to make them pop a little more..
I made new holes in the pages and cover and found a matching piece of ribbon (my sister gave me because she knows those are my favorite colors ☺) the pages are ready for some journalling!
....now time to choose wich one you like the most!
