Welcome to Paris Day Book

Hey everyone ! I hope you all are having a great weekend. I have been relaxing.
Today I am sharing a day book with you ! I used the Welcome to Paris line by Prima.

Very nice collection.
I decided to bring out the brown, tan, tones of the paper. I love it. 

Here I used the letter stamp that comes in the matching stamp set. I made it look old using distress stains and water.

Here is one of the Prima Canvas resist pieces. I absolutely love these ! You have to add some to your stash.

Here I made my own Gesso...I wanted the white wash with texture. I love what it adds...I hope you can see the detail.

Here is a shot of the book semi open...

***To Make "gesso" 

Add sea salt (for smaller grains using table salt)

White paint 

a dab of water 

and mod podge  to a bowl or cup....you could also use Helmar Decoupage & Craft Paste for a thicker feel.

Mix and mix....

add it to your project...be sure to heat set it with a heat gun...this brings out that texture and dies it fast.

Thanks for spending a few moments with me today !

You can find wonderful products to make your very own day book at THE STORE !
