Y&FH Hang Loose Release Day! (picture heavy)

Happy Y&FH Hang Loose Release Day!!!
Aloha! I hope you've been enjoying the previews of the Hang Loose series at the Y&FH blog these past couple of days. If you have, you'll know Leanne and the rest of the DT have been busy showing these adorable new images off.
I decided to use almost all of the images in one project to make a mixed media journal cover. I feel it is necessary to say that I am in no way an expert on mixed media, I just like using all of the products and will sit for extended periods of time coloring and painting and outlining.
The images and sentiments were stamped on a piece of watercolor paper and after coloring them, gesso was applied over the entire page.  Multiple colored Gelatos were used for a rainbow effect...because I always think of rainbows when I think of Hawaii. Additional images were colored and fussy cut, and after gluing a few of them to the page, gesso was applied again.
 Additional stamping, chipboard letters, and DP were added.
TH Fragments and Glossy Accents were used to make charms, but after deciding they were too large to use as charms I glued them onto the cover.
After a few more layers, this is the finished journal.

All of these adorable images can be found at the Yumi & Fumi Handmade online store, along with all of the Y&F collections.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave such nice comments, they always make me smile!

WOWZER! What a great project. Totally brilliant to use the tiles to emphasize different images. This is one fantastic journal cover -- makes me want to open the book and see what else is hiding there. You definitely hit this one out of the ball park!!
