Bold and colourful Art Journal book cover

Art journal 

Hi Everyone, Beck Beattie here again to share with you how I created this cover for my next Art Journal.  I just love these Mixed Media Journals as they really take the layers and different products without warping.  You really can have LOADS of fun with them.  
I must say I really love how the bright colours still pop against that chalkboard base.  Here is a video I made to show you how the layers came together to get this look


The Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® products I used on this Art Journal cover are:

  • Gelatos® tool set
  • Gelatos®
  • Glaze, Gel Medium
  • Mixed media Journal
  • PITT Big Brush Pens
  • Whipped Spackle]
  • Chalkboard, Gesso

Here are some detail pics also where you can look at the effects all those layers created.

Don't be scared to have fun with your Art Journalling.  I find it such a great way to play with newproducts and see what they can do in different ways.

Hope you enjoyed my share today and I can't wait to be back here with another :)
