Mixed Media Art Journal cover and Page one

I have started a big project.
Making an art journal of myself.

Bought this thin dairy book fm Daiso. Super nice
I first covered it with leather and then used alchol ink on the surface. But then the leather color was too dark and I didndt like the outcome so I decided to change the design.

Here is the video of my process.

I used a lot of the beautiful inspiritng chipboards fm the Creative Embellishments.



It was fun coloring and gluing them with Stazon glaze.

I had an inspiration to highlight the concept of "time" in my project which is the main reasons I started working with steampunk.
So the first page of the journal I wanted to capture the character of "time" and here it is.

We may have difficulties(black area) in life, but TIME is also our friend that will guide us thruogh and give us HOPE(the rainbow colorful image of the clock and the shining color fm the background)

 

It was quite an adventure to work with black and then multiple colors but it was fun
"Fly with it "
