Small paper pournal

This was another project from my few arty days in Shropshire, this class was taught by Wendy and Annie.

We made a small blank journal, about 5 inches wide by 6 inches tall.

We used Brusho washes to colour paper (lining wallpaper), then once it was dry, we sprayed Brusho washes with added mica through stencils to decorate the pages.

For the covers, which were inspired by a Linda Monk class Wendy had taken,  we used scrim painted with gesso and paint, to create texture.  I coloured the scrim with fluid acrylic paint and added glitz with Treasure Gold, before sewing some beads on and adding a butterfly. 

The butterfly is made from polymer clay, stamped into and cut out using a cutter, then painted with acrylic paint after baking.
