|Front cover of journal using evny flap for a closure.|
After reading how to make it HERE I figured I should give it a try-out first and work out any problems I might have to work on. Believe me, I do have a few to work on, but I know what to look for now LOL! So here is the front of the journal, I still want to add the words "of art", or something along that line under the word journal. I did use some Velcro along the flap to keep it closed, because I did add something that the instructions did not, and I did it for my own use. You will see it in the last photo.
This journal is decorated the way I want, just paint, inks, stamps and stencils. I like the faux fabric look that was created by pressing the paper towel into the paint.
The swap will be according to what the other person likes.
So here it is my first hand made book/journal, a little rough but I like it and can't wait to start playing with it, but I am determined to finish the last couple pages of the large art journal before opening a new one.
After the swap I am thinking I'll make me an other one with more signatures to it...... we'll see how it goes.
