Hi Blitsy Fans!
Carisa with you today and I decided to alter the cover of my Canson Mixed Media Art Journal. This journal is one of my favorites to work in. The pages can handle a lot of media - wet and dry - layers galore. I'm excited because I nearly have it filled and thought it was time to make the outside match my personality and style as much as the inside. I tend to save altering the covers until I have quite a few pages done inside. I was inspired by the new Donna Downey Studios Stencil - artist soul. I'm sure you all know by now how much I love Donna Downey stencils and this quote spoke to me because it is so true! It is really simple to alter the front of these types of journals since they are made with heavy chipboard. A few layers of white gesso to cover up the print and you are ready to add your own color, texture and layers! Let's get started!
