Chocolate Baroque Journal cover

Good morning Lovelies I hope you're all well? My lovely hubby has shared his cold with me so I'm feeling rather boo boo at the moment, but it's a good excuse to sit around in trackies and warm jumpers drinking tea and doing some crafting lol!

Today I'm sharing with you an ongoing project, it's a Grey board Journal I purchased a while back from Chocolate Baroque and I'm making it my Chocolate Baroque Journal, I've already made a few pages which will be revealed at some point, but for now I'm sharing the front cover that I finished last night, I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

I've combined several techniques and mediums to create texture and interest, the stamps are all Chocolate Baroque.
I even used Gothic Fragments stamped into texture Paste. 
I've used die cuts and used Rusty Patina and gold Gilding wax to get an aged look, they were also stamped with Chocolate Baroque Sentiments for texture, I heat embossed in gold the heart in places and also using the same heart I mixed texture Paste with two different colour mica powders to create a two toned heart, I left it over night to dry then rubbed gold Gilding wax on it.
My background I used strips of scrap paper adhered with a Matt gel medium, then Gessoed over the top I then did my stamped into texture Paste and once dry used Gelato's and my finger to add colour and blend.
The butterfly again heat embossed in black and Gelato's blended with finger again, all finished off with some gold micro beads, bigger beads and Gilding wax all around the edges.

Thank you so much for visiting today, I hope you like my Chocolate Baroque Journal Cover as much as I loved creating it.
Have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
