Hi Hermine here, Made this art journal cover for Journal 52, this event started in january already but I couldn't decide how to make the cover untill last week.
This cover is made with the gelli plate. Put different colours acryllic paint on your gelli plate, then put some contrasting colours on a lid and stamp the circles onto the gelli plate. Put your cardstock on the gelli plate to lift the paint. Stamp the alphabet from the December Daily plate on this bakcground with Stazon black ink. Put aside for a while to make the border. Stamp with different colours the line of Chevrons 18965 - Plaid 19336 - Washi reverse grid 19075 - Washi grid background 19074 - Washi Chevron background 19072 and Washi Lines background 19073 on white cardstock and cut to size. Glue the gelli print onto a piece of cardstock that is larger then the print and glue pieces of the border in place. Make some shadow with Lyra crayons and a waterbrush. Stamp the Whimsical Collage 19360 on a piece of Kromecote with Stazon black and colour with alchol ink markers and cut out. Glue this on the gelliprint. Use the December Daily plate 1430 to make the word journal and the five and 2, cut out. And glue on the gelliprint. Make some accents with a black marker. Finally glue the die-cut keys in place. Then glue the finished piece on the cover with miracle tape.
Here a sneek peek in my journal, these are the pages for week 1 and 2, for which I used VLVS images.
And because I was left with a piece of gelli print I decided to make a card out of it. I stamped Make a Wish 19040 on the background with Colorbox Chalkink. Then I took a piece of transparant sheet stamped the flying eye insect 19356 on it with Versamark and embossed with black embossing powder. Stapled them together with a stapler without staples and because that leaves holes you can thread ribbon through it to tie around the card. On the card itself I used distress ink and stamped the triangle banner 19043 at one side.
hope this will inspire you. I for one had lots of fun making these.
