I purchased the gorgeous Dylusions Journal as part of my participation in the Documented Life Project 2015, and reviewed the journal in a blog post.
Today I decided to decorate the cover of it.
- I started with a wash of green, blue and yellow watercolour paint.
- Then I painted in scroll framework, a monogramme of 'DLP', and started to paint in detail of the greenery and a castle.
- Once the paint was dry I added some metallic gold ink to add some lustre.
- I then glued a chipboard lattice gothic style gate to it

I haven't decided whether or not to varnish the completed cover yet.
Maybe I should, just to ensure that if the cover gets wet, it won't ruin the decoration!
All ready for DLP 2015
