Making the art journal album cover

Playing with papers and glue
are always fun.
Well, at least for me.
Last night I played 
with swap things that I got 
from mba Dhani and Lia Sutra
and added some tag
and more embellishments of mine.
I played and played,
until I decided to make it
as a cover for my next 
art journal album.
My last year art journal is here.

I secretly adore the flower that
Colette put on top of her tag
for the swap, 
and wish I could use it somehow.
I found the place I thought
is perfect for it.
And I love the details
of Lia's altered clock chipboard.

I altered the apron to make it
looks like an artist's apron.

She is ready to step on 
any adventures
that life will offer to her.

When I looked for any paper
that could be right for the cover,
(I looked for the paper
after I done arranging the tags,
doll, chipboard and all)
I found this.
From Webster Pages.

And it clearly became its destiny
to be the cover for my album.

Still playing more using
glossy accent on some spots
including on the R at the swap
from mba Dhani.

When you can make
the piece uniquely yours,
you almost can hear 
your soul sings.

about a woman
who never mind
the art stain
interfere with
her daily style
(Ria Nirwana)
