Here's the thing.  When I get new art supplies, I want to try them ALL.  And when I say ALL, I mean, ALL AT ONCE.

So, yes, this little book-in-the-making may seem like a bit of overkill, but let me tell you, it's been some great arty fun so far!

All the pages--double sided Gelli Plate prints, using DecoArt Americana acrylic paints as the base.  Lots of watercolor type additions, using the rich DecoArt media paints.  The cover, that's where I went a little nutso:  Crackle Paste, Crackle Glaze, Antiquing Cream, all from the media line:

Some seam binding, ephemera, and a fairy

AND Gold Interference Paint.  Not that the little fairy cutie needs any glitzying up, but when one has gold interference paint, one must use it.  Okay, that may just be me . . . 

And Miss Jean says:  "YES, we will have a giveaway of DecoArt Products and a very useful Brayer from AlteredPages.   (total value $35.00)  We ask that you share our blog posts on YOUR social media pages/sites to be eligible.    Comment here and let us know where you posted!   Facebook, twitter, Pinterest, Linkedin, google+ !"
