Day 28- #90daysofblogging
Today I am using Deco Art's Media Line Matte Medium to add some printed napkin to my notebook insert for my a Dori bles..
first I scrunched up the napkin I used for my cover and pushed it to the side.
Then I took off the lid of my DecoArt Media Matte Medium. Why mate medium you may ask? Well I think I want to leave the option of adding additional paints to the surface and to me, the matte medium is better than decoupage for this purpose.
Then I took my dry brush and slathered matte medium on the surface. I do not need it to be a thin coat because my tissue papers have been squished and scrunched. The thickness of the matte medium will allow for gripping and greater under coverage.
Here I place the napkin on the cover, trying not to get all the wrinkles out.
I want a textured cover. This technique will allow so.
Then I place another layer of matte medium over the napkin. This second layer will allow for allow a base for other mediums. Not sure if I will add more. this here is busy enough for me.. ::chuckles::
Added the Deco Art Andy Skinner Stencil with Media line glack gesso.. Not my favorite look.. Added some bubble gum pink dylusions paint along the edges.. So that's two books in my A Dori Bles.. I need one to write in and use for a calender... and some pockets for collage and napkin art.. and and and.. :) It's beautiful.. soon to be full of lovely arty pages!!
