Last few nights, in between stuffing plushies and doing chores, I've started on a project to make collaged journals to give as gifts. I bought a bunch of blank books and gessoed the covers-Painted them with a base coat wash of color. Applied a second wash of antiquing hue. Then started to collage like I do on the little shrines or book cover that I sell. I had made a couple of gel medium transfers a few weeks ago. Last night I soak and removed paper. That's always a chore, but the results are worth it.
Now I'm off to wrap up Christine's box and get the house cleaned and decorated.
You made some really cool gifts!
