Journal with LOVE!

So far this month the Altered Pages Design Team has shared some awesome projects using products from our partnering company DecoArt! I love the quality of all the products I have used so far.  I  look forward to trying everything I had received!
I have always LOVED art journals.   I am sharing one  decorated ... it is the small Dylusions Journal!  I used products from Altered Pages and DecoArt!
What I love about the small Dylusions Journal is it is a wonderful craft base ready to paint. To start I painted a coat of Gesso on the journal.

Then with a matte Medium from DecoArt I painted on pieces of lace from my stash.  Some lace was white, others were shades of pink.
I painted over the lace using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics: Primary Yellow, Pimaray Magenta and  Celebration Pink Glamour Dust Ultra Fine Glitter Paint. Let dry.  Add a row of dew drops and a few seed beads with Tacky Glue to the edge of the journal. 

Adhere Petaloo Flowers and sequin hearts with Tacky Glue.  Once everything is dry tie ribbons to the elastic band

I tied a roll of Washi Tape with ribbon to the book to use when adding things to the pages if I were working in the journal away from home!
