Tutorial - Mixed media altered diary

Hello Guys

How'z you doing ,hope great

I am back with another tutorial and this time it's an altered diary . I always wanna to try some shimmery paints and finally got the chance to play with one when i purchased iridescent shimmering watercolor paints from crafters corner , they are highly pigmented and quick to work with.

For this project i used a diary gifted to me by one of my friend , firstly i  sized my mixed media paper 1/4 size less than the size of diary and glued it on the main cover.After that did some stenciling on both the sides with modelling paste .

For the layers and textures i torn away a piece of corrugated sheet  and glued it down ,untwisted some gauge and placed it around the corrugated sheet ,and positioned all my heavy embellishment with the help of heavy body gel and left it to dry naturally.Once everything is dried nicely i covered i entire surface with black heavy gesso. 

Finally played around with shimmery paints ,i used various shades of , gold , copper , yellow, red and orange.

There after i glued black micro beads on the edges of the corrugated sheet with multi media matte and high lighted the same with inka god.

For the sentiment i first die cut ,stamped , and than inked with distress ink (seedless preserves ). On the edges i did used some inka gold too.

and ta da our brand new diary cover is ready

Thank you guys .

Hope you enjoy going through this .

keep crafting and have fun.
