Deco Art Journal With Vintage Wash and chalky Finish paint

Hi everyone Dee here with a post using the new Vintage wash paints & the Eileen Hull Journal die from Sizzix. I am in love with the colours & the whole feel of this journal it's
like old worn soft leather I can't explain but its so tactile and vibrant.

Method Used

  1. Cut the grey board with the Eileen Hull Journal die.
  2. Glue together I used artist tape.
  3. Paint with Chalky Finish paints painting the colours randomly over both sides of the Journal.
  4. Once dry follow with the Vintage wash in Turquoise knocking back with a dry cloth and a baby wipe in the area's that i wanted clear colour follow this with the Patina Vintage wash.
  5. For the inside I wanted a more vibrant red so used the Beige & Red Orange with only a tiny bit of Turquoise.
  6. Seal the whole surface with Soft Touch Varnish.
  7. Once all dry I stamped the script stamp randomly using Stazon ink.
  8. I then followed this with the alphabet stamp and versfine ink using the stamp and bond then heat set.
  9. Using a brush dab the gold pigment powder over the stamp and bond then using a large fluffy brush stroke over to remove the access powder.
  10. To colour the coin I painted first with gold media fluid followed by raw umber.
  11. Using first patina antiquing cream knock it back follow with white gentle remove and swipe with guilding wax.
  12. Thread up your Journal using cord as per instructions and I attached some beads to the ends.
