Art Journals ...

On reason I haven't had much time for stamping cards n' such lately (besides work) is that I was weeks behind on completing a spread for an art journal project I'm participating in. I was stumped on how to finish the front and then it hit me - chipboard!

I used chipboard letters from Stampin' Up!'s "On Board Lots of Letters" to spell out Mexico (nice that the chipboard is 25% off this month). I covered each letter with tissue paper from some papel picado using matte gel medium and aged the tissue with a color wash of acrylic paint.

I finished the journal spread last weekend (you can see read more about the journal and see more pics here) and it's now on its way to the next artist!
