This weekend's inspiration comes from Mary's art journal. She's used the Challenge Product for this month, texture paste, to create a textured cover for her art journal.
First she covered the journal with some beautiful paper and applied texture paste in some areas. Then set it aside to dry. Once the texture paste was dry, color was added using Gelatos from Faber Castell and white paint. The words and phrases were stamped on tissue and adhered to the cover with Collage Pauge. She then added more paint to incorporate the words into the cover.
The cover is embellished with gold foiling and rub-ons. She also added a strip of gold foil paper to the spine.
