Haute Mess Art Journal *Decorating the Cover!!!

Hello there my lovely creative friends! Elena here! Today I am super happy to show you a new project that I have made with the incredible products by Bad Girls Couture. I decided
to decorate the cover of my Haute Mess Art Journal, which will be available very soon! I also prepared a video tutorial so you can see the process. I hope you feel inspired to make your own special project! Please look here to see the process: https://youtu.be/zksG4_ctFrg

This is the “COBBLESTONE LANE” Art Journal. It has a Cream colored canvas cover. I decorated the cover with mixed media in blue and pink colors. They are my favorite colors! I put two old brushes on the cover. They are a symbol of the creative process. I also added a tag inscribed with “Special”. I am sure in this art journal there will only be Special projects! One of the decorations on the cover is from 2Crafty chipboard. I covered it with Haute Mess Paints by Bad Girls Couture.



Haute Mess Paint is made by hand by artisans here in the USA (Southern California).
We are a SMALL BATCH COMPANY. Every single color is mixed by hand ONE GALLON AT A TIME to ensure freshness.

There is a unique BATCH NUMBER on every single bottle of paint. We are able to tell
by that number who mixed your paint and what date it was mixed on.

Haute Mess Paint is completely free of VOC’s. (Volatile Organic Compounds). Paint
has chemicals that can stay in the air for years. It can also give you headaches,
allergies, nausea, and other health problems. Not Haute Mess!

We are Eco-Friendly. No VOC’s. Recyclable container. The container can be
repurposed. Haute Mess Paint and Mediums swatch book included. Swatch book is ACTUAL
paint and mediums. NOT computer generated images. What you see is EXACTLY what you
get. Inspirational Post Card with ideas to inspire your muse.

These are the materials that I have used:
Haute Mess Mediums: Gesso, Clear Gesso, Glass Bead Gel
Haute Mess Paints:
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Kiss & Don’t Tell
Couture Pink
Dive Bar

I hope I was able to inspire you today!

See you again soon!
