Project W020: Grungy Flip Tea-Dyed Journal

Friday, July 27, 2012

Happy Friday!
I am super happy today not only because I have a new Project W but because I am going to see Cirque Du Soleil tonight with the dh.... omg!!! So exciting! I have been wanting to go so badly and now I will! Wish me luck! Did I mention I LOVE canvas? Yes, yes I do and I especially love the way canvas works with any mediums, say gesso, glimmer mist and tons of love? I simply love how this journal came out! Take a look! Warning, picture overload ;)

Look at those dyed sheets of paper? Neat huh! You will not believe how I did it, super simple!

YUM! Lots of gesso, mists and fun! I had very inky fingers after this but it was all well worth it! This is a special gift for someone who I will reveal on Sunday, I hope that person likes it as much as I enjoyed making it! 
Now here are your project sheets!

Hope you try it out!!! Well I am off to get all ready for tonight, need to find my outfit! lol Thank You so much for stopping by and for your wonderful comments.

Please visit Jodie's Etsy for all the Nature Garden goodies used in this project sheet
