G’day everyone.

Today I’m going to finish this Mini Art Journal off by decorating the cover.  I’m going to be using tissue paper and collaging this onto the cover, then painting it with Gesso, before applying the coloured acrylic paint. I’m also going to be colouring some ribbon so it matches the cover nicely. I also have a die that I purchased from AliExpress that will finish by Art Journal nicely.
