Finish Dream Time Journal !

Well i finally got to finish off my friend Mary's Dream Journal and i've passed it on to her, she loves it so just thought i'd show you. Its made using a large blank paged journal, foil, foam, sand paper,a key, beads, a bit of cellophane, paint, bitumen and spirits. I love it when its all covered in the bitumen and then once dry you take it back with the spirits to reveal whats underneath but also creating a cool  aged effect. the foil crinkles nicely but i was really surprised that the cellophane really really really crinkles. 
 
To show you what i mean, this is one i've just added the bitumen to but it has lots of the cellophane, and the effect is awesome, cant wait till its dry and i can rub it back, if you click on the pic to make it larger i think you'll see what i mean, the bitumen stays off all the really raised crinkly bits of cellophane so when i rub it back it should really pop lol

I've made a few more to and now to work out what the heck i'm gunna do with them all :)
