New Year art journal

Good Morning and Happy New Year!
Well, the hustle & bustle is over and we are going into the new year, it's going to be a good year!
We got snow on Christmas day, in the news it said it was the 1st time in 86 years for Little Rock, it was pretty exciting. We got around 6 or 7"and we were house bound. Yes, around here that's a lot of snow, we have mountains hills and sharp curves to maneuver any direction we go and it makes me a nervous wreck driving on it. It's all gone now and we're getting back to normal, yay!
Today I'm showing you my altered journal cover. It's Dyan Reaveley's new journal - looks like Inspiration Emporium is out of stock right now, but, you can contact them and ask when they'll be in.
I started with painting the cover with gesso, when that was dry I used my Ranger Adirondack paint dabbers in red pepper, pink sherbet, aqua, snow cap, citrus, pitch black and metallic silver. I did the white out lining and doodling with my Gelly Roll white pen. I used my SU! splatter stamp for the black splatters and Dyan's stamps, the dylusions basic background, doodle parts and word love.
The circle outlines are made with a paint dabber lid tapped on the paint dabber to pick up the paint. The circles are made by stamping with the dabber itself on the journal.
That's it, I hope you like what you see. Just have fun with it, believe me, it's so easy!
I can't wait to get started on the inside!
Have a happy day!
