From the Designer: "I made a mixed media journal cover using the Leisure Arts Diamond Art called Tribe Design. I created the Diamond Art pattern as instructed. Then I cut off the edges so it would fit onto the cover of my canvas journal and covered the whole thing with clear gesso. I used acrylic sprays in blue and gold and brushed them on for precise placement and then spritz with water to achieve my desired result. I love the way the tribe pattern provides a beautiful base to the this art journal!"
