Anything goes- 'Starry Night' journal cover

Hi all!

Monika here with my very first post for Tando Creative blog!
This project was made for Make& Take class which took place last weekend at Ministry of Mixology event in Coventry.

To start with you'll need a plain covered journal/ notebook which needs to be primed first with Gesso or Matte Medium. 
Then, run Modeling Paste through stencils and let it dry.

 Using palette knife spread some Texture Sand Paste on your large ( size 9- 16x 9cm) tag

Paint all of the embellishments, tag and both sides of your cover with black paint.
Using make up sponge or soft brush apply darker shade of blue roughly on your tag and both covers, then repeat the step with lighter shade, try to blend in both colours. 

 Make some splatter using watered down white paint and toothbrush or paint brush.

 Apply Metallic Lustre with your fingers or soft cloth to reveal the texture and accent the edges of the journal cover and tag.

Repeat this step on your embellishments.

Cut a small piece of cheese cloth and dye it with a wash of blue paint.

Time to put everything together :)  using a strong craft glue apply your elements on the front of your cover and let it set for few hours. 

* you can use different embellishments or even an images stamped on the card stock.

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this post.
