“Finished Journal Cover”

Hi Friends,

If you haven’t worked it out yet, I am partial to Butterflies and Birds. This cover I have used the Napkin Decoupage Technique I showed you in my “PREVIOUS POST”

I love how this turned out. It has layers of the old book page, napkin, washi tape, clear stickers and a small panel with Tim Holtz Mixed Media Birdie, Tissue paper on it. You can see I used this technique all over the book cover and did a bit of highlighting with some TH Distress Crayon. I have also added my eyelets on the 3″ spine ready for my page signatures.

This picture above gives you a bit clearer look at the layers and the Focal Point panel on its own, which is adhered with some foam tape and dimensional glaze for extra strength. If you notice that the edges of the covers are not perfect and that is the way I like them. I just have to cover the inside pages, more than likely with scrapbook paper and then make the “junk” part of the journal before I start embellishing and using it 🙂

Have a great night
