I am excited to say that I am attending a Finnabair class in October this year! The anticipation is killing me, so in the mean time, I am playing up a storm and preparing for my adventure.
I say adventure as the class is not being held in my home town and I have to travel to JBay to attend the event. There are 9 of us Capetonians going, 7 of us are in the same group on the Saturday and Sunday class and the other two are doing the Thursday & Friday class...
I was inspired by this post on Finn's blog: Industrial Book Cover
Here is my journal cover in step out photos, so as usual...make yourself comfy and peruse at your leasure.
I started by covering my journal with clear Crackle paste by Viva called Facetten-Lack Transparent. I let this dry overnight. Then I painted it with black acrylic paint as I don't have black gesso.
Once this was dry I added Silks in Key Lime and Bolivian Blue and Viva Inka Gold silver.
Having now covered everything in paint, I decided I needed more embellishments and added a few.
Then I had to paint them black too...
Finally, here is the finished product!
