Mixed Media Art Journal Cover

Today I was in the process of art journaling and I decided to decorate my actual art journal cover! I had wanted to do this for a while but could never decide how I wanted to decorate the cover. The over all feel is really inspired by my love of all things whimsical and creepy! I'm still planning on adding more detail over time but for now I'm happy with how it's coming out. Hope you guys enjoy this! I'd love to get your feedback...
The Background Consist of Gesso, Acrylic paint, tissue paper..
Door was colored with Acrylic paint, distress inks, Gel bead medium, Liquid pearls

 I used "Ruby Red" liquid Pearls to achieve this textured look within the heart.

The Tutorial Video for this cover will be on my "Youtube" channel shortly so be sure to check that out.
