Pearly Sparkles Challenge, April 2019

This month's challenge at Pearly Sparkles is Flowers or Showers.  Decided to do a bit of mixed media for this challenge.

This is an old Enid Blyton story book, I did start it as a Journal back in 2014, but the end of 2013 had been very traumatic, Dad died as a result of injuries in a car accident and I just couldn't do journalling..

I happened to find it when I was cleaning out a drawer and decided now was the time, to move on.  I pulled off as much as I could of the old altered cover and then slathered on the black gesso.

Then I went mad with Fresco Acrylic chalk paints (my favourite acrylic paints), used stencils,  handmade flowers as well as some small mulberry flowers and leaves. A lock completes the cover.
