Art-journal cover by Eirini

Hello dear Mixed Media Place fans!!

It's Eirini here today with my new handmade black art journal, presenting you the cover. It's a little bit experimental art-journal, that's why i tried to make my own handmade cover. Always watching that beautiful Finnabair creations, i couldn't resist trying to experiment with acrylic paints and mica powders.

At first I covered my page with black gesso then glued Scrapiniec chipboard pieces and other embellishments and covered everything again with black gesso. Finally I stamped and embossed everything with Lost and Found 7 Dots Studio clear stamp (bubbles).

I played with Prima metalic emerald green acrylic paint and mica cooper powders plus silver acrylic paint to achieve shining effect and extra dimension on my page. I sprayed everything with white mist to add brightness and covered some areas with white gesso using my fingers.

I distressed edges with black jet StazOn to soften color differences and placed my flowers and other embellishments ( 7 Dots Studio stickers from Destination Unknown and Verano Azul collections, pearls, micro beads etc)

Some final touches was done with Platinum Liquid Pearls and that's it!!

I hope you liked my first black art journaling cover and I delivered some inspiration for you. Keep crafting and creating !!!
