challenge#66 - cover at scrapki-wyzwaniowo

On Facebook at Paper People group (search for it on Facebook!  Amazing!) I found a "Cover" challenge for journals.  I just happened to have a Dylusions journal that I haven't done anything with yet.  I love art journaling.  I just haven't delved into it myself.  Where is the best place to start art journaling?  With a cover contest.

The contest is open to everyone.  No particular product needed!

I used gesso on the cover, then sprayed it with Dylusions sprays (black and Calypso Teal), with a bit of the White Linen, which blended and smudged some of the colors.  I recommend the Dylusion's White Linen spray, it shows up opaque white on dark surfaces.  Love!  I used Black Diamond Stickles over some of the black swirls.

The other embellishments are from Graphic 45, Prima and the Tim Holtz line.  The paper doll is Grace Kelly, which I purchased off Ebay.
