Journal part 2

This is a four part workshop: “Journals and Journal Pages – Mixed Media – Drawing on Inspiration” with Janice Berkebile of Daniel Smith Seattle Store.  It’s still possible to join for the last two sessions!

After making our journals during session one, today’s second session was about embellishing the covers and pages. “Grounds & Decorative Paper. Laying the journaling foundation”

We used light molding paste and stencils to create relief images on the covers. As always, Janice was generous in letting us use her own supplies. She had so many stencils.

I used one of hers, one of mine and one of another workshop member.  Later we painted over them with watercolor.

Next, we glued in ephemera, using Golden Fluid Matte Medium as the glue. Janice recommends that over other glues or Modge Podge! She also brought her collection! I didn’t add any to my journal but I found some to use in the “secret project” journal.
