How to create an Always art journal cover.

 

 

Ingredients:

Always Art Canvas

Dew Drops in pink and red

Paints – I used red, pink, orange, and pearlescent white

IZINK mist – copper buff

Faber Castel Pitt Pen – Black Ink

Embossing ink pad

Seth Apter Baked Texture- Vintage Bees Wax

Card backing

Gelli Plate

Brayer

Heat Tool

 

Directions:

1.  Go over the word Always with a pitt pen or other permanent ink pen.  Prepare Gelli plate with first color of acrylic paint of your choosing.  Bray with color and lay canvas onto the Gelli plate to transfer paint.

2.  Let layer dry and prepare plate with the next color of your choosing.
3.  Repeat the process of laying the canvas down.  Let layers dry between paint applications and keep layering until you have a lovely background.
5.  Add any mists to your canvas
6. Go over canvas lettering and design one additional time with the Pitt pen.
7.  Cover the entire surface with embossing ink and add the vintage bees wax powder.
8.  Bake with the heat gun until clear and shiny.  Since it is baked powder you can go longer than you would with embossing powder.  Repeat again with a layer of embossing ink and bees wax powder.
9.  Mount canvas on cardboard backing and trim to size.
10.  Using liquid adhesive, form the heart or another shape of your liking on the canvas with Dew Drops.
11. Once fully dry you can add to frame, or like I will be doing, use to create an art journal cover.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this project!  Lots of steps this week but the beautiful results are well worth it.
See you next time.
