Live in the moment...

Hello friends
Hope you are all good!
The Easter holidays are over....
I'm back to the day job's really 
going to be a struggle to get back into a routine!

So a really quick post to share with you this cover of a blank journal...
I started by applying a wash of Dylusions paint (dirty martini) and gesso to the cover of the book...
Then  re-using a polka-dot paper gift bag, I set about layering it with old text pages...
I then added more gesso and some of my new favourite slate grey, dylusions paint.
 The photo is from Tim Holtz photo booth, I also used some of Tim's  Idea-ology findings
 I added some vintage lace, some rusty wire and to finish I added some stitching. 

I added splats of ground coffee dylusions paint and re-purposed some ric rac ribbon that was originally on a gift bag I had....( Remember I hoard everything!)
As always please feel free to leave a comment....I appreciate you passing by!

Have a great week!
Bye for now
