The journal was primed with white gesso. Once dry crackle paste was applied through the AA Bubbles stencil and allowed to dry completely.

Next, spray AA Colorations Avocado and a bit of water. Move the journal around to allow color to move. Dry and do the same with AA Colorations Warm.

Using the same AA Colorations sprays, dye a piece of cheesecloth and dry it. Adhere to the cover using a gel medium and allow to dry.
