''True LOVE is like a DIAMOND''
last for ever
clay mixed media notebook

Hello from Greece
Maria here wishing you all  stay safe and creative
Happy Valentine's day


...so because of the day ..i was thinking of transforming an old but unused notebook..
 I covered it with several pieces of book pages

My first inspiration was to compine 

a mold diamond heart from plaster with clay amd mit_castings embellishments..

First i create a clay tile and i press on it when the clay was wet Andy's stamp Memories in India and let it dry naturally
Up to notebook  i put with palet knife Andy's structure paste on some parts
edges and center
i put also structure paste on the mitform_casting embellishments and after that when the clay tile dried i paint one layer of gesso or primer..same thing to  embellishments .Also paint the diamond heart with primary magenta and the notebook with Andy's chalk paint "London Brick"

with my pallete knife some area aplied gesso of decoart media to make extra texture 

washes with the  primary magenta on the notebook  ..

then i continued with  payen'sgrey and quingold paint..

and i took out the colour with babe wipe in a few places...as the result was ok by me..

i paint with the same technique the clay tile but i used different colours..cobalt teal payen's grey ,prussian blue and quingold paints  .

i make a rust effect with the acrylics also to the embellishments



Then i decided to use  lava paste with a stiff brush on the side of the book..i dried right away with a heat gun and the amazing result showed up..i paint it with a quingold paint and after that ..dry brush with white paint.
I used a plastic card to make some vertical and horizontal lines with silver paint.
On the back side of the notebook i liked to use first some stamps to edges[mandala and circle of thoms]


I adore so much Mandala stencil  and i was so happy to put it to the back side above all the techniques

hope you like it 



i painted  with payne's grey the embellishment ''family ''   and after that with a stiff brush made a little touch of white acrylic


I made the  edged of the notebok rusty  and some parts on  sides of the heart.
 I stuck all the parts  with the  quick grab glue ..
 put one layer of a glossy varnish on the heart to shine
 and connect the metal arrow with a rusty wire..




i enjoy so much this mixedmedia renovation
love the result
hope you feel the same with me
take care of yourselves
dream big
and love without limits
thank you so much 

Maria Kantzali
