Art Journaling - Under the Sea!

After the watercolor, I cut out all the elements. I glued them to my Altered Book ART JOURNAL. I added the gold dimensional paint here and there, acrylic paint around the border (DecoArt Bahama Blue) and Mod Podged the whole thing once it was dry. Once the mod podge dried I outlined the creatures with my micron archival pen. This project was fun!
