Art Journal Cover

Since my trusty old sewing machine is out being repaired, I have been working on other projects that don't require sewing.  Yesterday, using a piece of sticky-backed canvas, I finally created a cover for my art journal.  I painted it with acrylics, added texture with bubble wrap and cardboard, collaged with tissue paper then finished it by using Smooch Spritz to give it a gold glimmer.
This bee was on a paper napkin, a great collage source.  If you look closely you can see the gold spritz.


  1. Love this, Ellen--it's beeeee-utiful!! Pam =)

  2. Oh, and one other thing...a HUGE bumble bee chased me out of my backyard about 20 minutes ago--I just had to laugh when I opened my laptop and read your post! Same wavelength for sure!!
