Art Journal Cover Page - Whimsy June Release

Hello Friends! I am here today with another release creation for the Whimsy June Release. I want to show you another art journal page, this time the cover page.

I used several new products from the June release as well as some older stamps and dies to create my Art Journal cover page. 

To create the background, I covered part of the front page with Gesso and applied  a thin layer of acrylic paint in turquoise, pink and yellow. I made sure that some of the white Gesso shines through. 



Acrylic matte medium was used to apply Tim Holtz printed tissue paper on part of the colored BG. 

I made sure the BG was dry before adding the tissue paper. I used the clear stamp set Circles, Circles, Circles to stamp different size circles randomly onto the BG. 


The checkered background was die cut from white cardstock using the NEW Checkerboard die  and the word ‘Art Journal’ using the Bold Alphabet die set. I used black cardstock to cut out the palm trees from the NEW Build an Island die set. 
There was only part of the checkerboard die used for the cover page and it was and color it was paintd with turquoise acrylic paint. The bold letters were painted yellow. After everything was dry I added some accents with picked raspberry distress ink to the letters.
The die cuts were attached to the cover page using glue. I also adhered some of the small squares  that were left from die cutting the checkerboard. Another new Stamp set was used to add more textures: NEW Create a Scene - Beach  stamp set’ 




I added finishing touches with a white Posca marker and Stickles glitter glue to the little die cut squares from the checkered background.
