"Lets Sea that Journal" - by Katie Lamb

Evening crafter's.

Here's our last Sea themed project, Katie has taken one of Sam K's MDF Journal covers and created this fabulous layout. Using my favourite resin piece, the sea horse, and it's been transformed by beautiful rich colours and textures. 

I really hope that you have enjoyed our projects by the design team, and are inspired to create something memorable this summer.

A few people asked me if they was a way to easily view all these products on our website, and so I have created a new category in the Treasure Trove section called "Seaside" here you will find all the ocean delights the DT have been playing with :)

Paint the MDF book cover white and let it dry. Cover then with turquoise paint and let it dry before applying a stencil mask. 

I use modelling paste and only used part of the stencil to give it a distressed look. 

Dye some cheese cloth with blue and green ink and dry it off with a heat gun.  

Glue it down the book and then apply heavy gel medium to the cover. Sprinkle on microbeads,drew drops and mermaid beads.

Take the resin pieces and paint them turquoise, Next apply texture paste over them and once this has set, paint with quinacridone gold fluid acrylic. 

Paint part of the book cover with yellow-green acrylic paint and apply more texture paste around the edges. Add more quinacridone gold over the top to create a rusty look. 

On the back of the book I covered with a stencil mask and sprinkled over Cathedral Pines Magicals, apply water to spread the colour. 

Then apply yellow-green acrylic paint mixed with a little water. The final layer is texture paste and quinacridone gold acrylic paint.
