Media Journal, Decorating the Cover

So... I have this new Media Journal and it's AMAZING!  The Media Journal by Dina Wakely has 54 Multi Surface pages to create with.  Canvas, burlap, linen, thick kraft paper.  I am thinking this art journal will become pages for future classes.  For now I wanted to make it my own by altering the cover.  Plus, Ranger sent me a box of goodies and a lot of Dina Wakely's new releases.  This stencil "WHAT WE DO" has to be the bestest stenil yet!

Check it out.

I prepped my inside page with white gesso.  Then shut the cover and randomly smeared Dylusions Paints.

Once dry, layer the stencil and sponged on some white gesso.  Then I rubbed it off with a wipe.  EEK... the effect is fabulous!

 I flipped it over and layered the stencil again.  This time just rubbing off the paint.  Same idea different technique.

Back inside and this time I am smearing paint all over the stencil.  This effect bleeds under the stencil and it turned out so cool.  I further smeared with my fingers.  

So awesome!


Even the spine gets some paint.

This stencil says it all.  It makes the perfect cover and start to my creative journey.
