Altered Journal Cover

Hi all, Srigowri Rajesh is on the blog today to show you how easily we can decorate a journal cover with mixed media techniques, using Little Birdie’s wide range of mixed media products. This is my last project as a design team member. Here, I take the opportunity to thank all the Itsy Bitsy family members, who gave me the chance to exhibit my talents and explore the variety of mediums to try and share the knowledge with all craft lovers. Once again thank you team Itsy Bitsy. Now, will go into the project.

Step 1

Take the journal and apply black gesso on it.

Step 2

Cut cardboard pieces into strips and stick them on the cover. The size depends on the size of the journal. Leave gaps in between the cardboard strips while you stick.

Step 3

Take Little Birdie background stencil of your choice and mixed media paste and apply on the strips.

Step 4



Now take all the embellishments and apply black gesso on it.

Step 5

Arrange them in such a way and paint the whole thing with Little Birdie chalk paints.

And we are done!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
