Blogtoberfest 2014 Day 14 - a craft away day

Last week we were staying in the south west so I got a chance to pop over Bristol way to see my lovely friend Lisa and spend the day crafting with her.  She has recently done a fab mixed media class - take a look at her blog to see the beautiful book covers she has done.  She had asked me to bring a hardbacked book with me to decorate and I decided to completely remove the spine so that the front and back cover could be the covers for the art journal that I am planning on doing for Journal Your Christmas this year.

So after a day of gesso-ing, mod podging and mist spraying I ended up with this pair of covers.

Now as many of you know I am not really a messy crafts girl but I did really enjoy this, it was very therapeutic seeing it all finally come together.  So watch this space, I may just be purchasing some Gesso and Mod Podge to have a go at doing this sort of thing again!!

Tomorrow I will show more photographs showing all the stages when I share my WOYWW post.


  1. Oh, wow! I'm pretty hopeless at mixed media, so I love to see how beautifully it can turn out! I saw Lisa's on her blog and loved them too

  2. Oooh Karen!!!!!! Looks great :-)

  3. I'm impressed you're trying something new. Good for you

  4. Wow, I have seen this before commenting but can I just say well done on getting messy!!! I can't wait to see the finished journal!! Will you be art journaling more often?


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, I do read all of them and they are really appreciated.
