Today is the perfect winter day: the snow is falling quietly and we are all spending time indoors. Jaco set up the kids TV and doing other admin, the girls are hanging out with a friend down stairs. Even the dogs are laying on their pillow very happy just to be near us. I am working on a few projects at once... and one is doing the cover for my December Journal. I snapped this picture just now while the varnish was still wet and the album has to be horizontal while drying.

First I spray painted the cover of my album silver. Next I adhered some elements with hot glue: (A Jenni Bowlin star, 7 gypsies leaves, a feather, October Afternoon label, Authentique words and Pebbles wood button). I mixed up some Envirotex varnish and dripped it in circles around the embellishments. I made sure to add a few extra drops for more texture. I will post more pictures when the varnish is dry... usually about 24 hours.

Have a gorgeous Sunday... full of heart peace, happiness and contentment.

love and a kiss
