Art Journal by Tina Connolly

#couturecreationsaus

Hi everyone,
It's Tina here with an Art Journal cover I created recently. 

I used the new Couture Creations Vintage Rose Garden papers, along with lots of dies and some embossing folders.
 


I embossed using Loren and Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folders to create extra texture. The diecuts were given a variety of treatments including heat embossing, spraying with shimmer mists, and applying various mediums. 



I wanted a textural, grungy look so  used embossing powders in random areas.



Here's the back cover.....
I once again used lots of diecuts and layered them over strips of Vintage Rose Garden papers.
The Artdeco Lace Frame die was used as a stencil and I applied gel medium through it, just make sure to wash your die immediately.  
I used strips of Core'dinations cardstock and embossed it using Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder, then sanded it to expose the core.
The fun thing about a project like this is that there are no rules, you can experiment and have fun, and create the project in a variety of styles such as shabby chic, grungy, or whimsical.
