More journal pages!

My BP was skyhigh with all the stress I was under when I did this page. The head is from a Dylusions Download, the body, arms, legs and boots I drew and cut out myself. She doesn't have any hands on purpose. I mis-spelled the word control but decided to leave as is.

Did these to show my love of letters and words.

Another A5 Canvas Journal Cover!

Here is another A5 journal cover, hope you like it.

I started by applying paint with a baby wipe in white and pale yellow then spray painted with Dylusions spray paints in orange and red while it was damp through my flower stencil.

I left this to dry and gave another quick misting of worn leather Dylusions in places. I made a heart shape from part of the canvas and glued some tissue onto the reverse. I then glued the heart onto the book. I used my artistic stamps to stamp the words Inspire and Create cut out and glued them to the book cover. I turned a 1/4" seam and glued the cover to an A5 book. To finish I glued the first and last page of the book over the canvas on the inside cover to hide it.

Thanks for looking.

Journal Cover after Kate Crane's tutorial!

I was impressed with Kate Crane's tutorial in the September Craft Stamper which uses rolled canvas as a support. Here's my first attempt at making a cover for my A4 Journal.

I used a photograph of my eyes and glued them to the head on the front cover.

And here's the back cover.
I didn't print my photo onto the canvas but chose to mod podge my photo onto the canvas tag. I really like the effect of it.

Kate's tutorial was really great and easy to follow as are her DVD's. Hope you like it and thank you so much for looking and leaving me your comments.
