Faux Leather Art Journal

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

What are you up to on this peaceful Sunday?

I made this art journal for a design team application. I was unsuccessful but I do like the technique I used to make the cover. I had put so  much effort into this it seemed a shame not to let it have its day on my blog.


This shows the finished cover of the journal I also attached a pencil. 


Here are the raw materials: Kraft card, Glycerine, water in a spray bottle and a plain covered journal. 



This is the inside of the journal my first page. I want to use it to try out different techniques and keep the result in one place that is easy to find. 


I decorated the back cover as well. I have created a tutorial on how to create this journal it is at the top of my blog. 

Enjoy your day. 

Happy Crafting 

Hugs Jackie
