The journal above, (featured in the last/previous blog post) needs a cover.
Using two pieces of virgin chipboard, a layer of scrunched pattern tissue was applied with liquid matte medium.
Pattern tissue paper is very sturdy and malleable.
This cover is being made exactly like one made for a gifted journal. The cover turned out so well, it was hard not to keep it for this one, but…Ms. SpoolTeacher was convinced that she could produce it again.
See the slide show below to view all the steps so far.
The final results won’t be seen in this slide show as the pieces, up to this stage, are under heavy layers to flatten them out some before the next phase begins.
The next step will be to apply a layer of texture paste through a stencil of hearts. After the paste dries, it will be painted a color for the base under the final layer of purple tissue paper.
