Life Documented 2017: journalcover

2016 is almost gone...so time to prepare my journalcover for next year. DLP will not go on, but there is a new fb-group: life documented 2017. Jump over if you love journaling!

Here is de front of my new, thin journal
And here the backside...
How i made this? Simple...
The last 3 years i used the same kind of journal. (Lucky me, i have a few journals for the next years. They are 19cm x 25cm) 
No stress...here we go:
First 2 layers gesso
Grab different types of letter leftovers. 
More layers...
Again gesso, gesso and more gesso
Next layer: different colors acrylic paint (i used blue, green, purple and pink)
The next step is a big one...
Another layer: glaze and golden fluid raw umber. 
Its brown now...so ugly. After a minute and half its babywhipes-time

This is the result. I love the dimension 
And the last layer: gel medium (to protect the cover)
As you can see...i'm ready for a new year journaling
