Journal cover

Hi there,
I am lucky to be getting my supplies together for an amazing opportunity to do a class with the gorgeous Jane Davenport in Mexico next month. Today I thought I would share with you the cover of one of the journals that I am taking with me.

I am altering an old poetry book and as the book develops I will share pages with you. I have painted the background using acrylic paints and then collaged a printed image of Frida Kahlo on the top of the paint layer.

I have then stencilled designs over the top of the image using extra heavy gesso. I have coloured the detail of the stencils with Ranger Distress Ink pads in Spiced Marmalade and Seedless Preserves.

Stencils used: 
Memory box: Alpha worn out and pattern raymelle
