Mixed Media Journal by Lesa Bird


Hello Everyone
 I've been inspired by Finnabair, and with the help of the
 new Couture Creations Essential Dies, today I am showcasing a 2015 Journal/Diary for a friend
here we go

Firstly I cut from white card stock, 1 Bold Arrow, 3 Ladybird Anthem, and 3 of the flourishes from the 2 tags and flourish set, all dies are from the NEW Everyday Essentials Collection.

I glued all the die cuts, on to a piece of chipboard cut to fit the front of the diary, along with the rest of my embellishments. 
Once glue was set, l then painted the background with black gesso, and the foreground with white gesso.
  When all was completely dry, I used spritz to colour, in different colour layers, letting each layer dry, before adding the next,

I rubbed metalic paints over the Everyday Essentials Die cuts, to highlight them,
and added Crystal  gemstones to the Ladybirds wings

Finally I sprayed the whole thing with a clear gloss paint, when dry, glued it to the front of the diary
hope you like, but most of all have fun with it
