Hello just an extra share this morning. I love making these art journals and over the last couple of days I have made another, so here it is. I have made it with completely recycled materials. I use backing board from envelopes for the cover, even the signatures inside are made from card and papers that were slightly damaged around the edges. They were cut down to make them the perfect size for the journal.
I used the faux leather technique and then embossed with a rose embossing folder on the from and back cover, When this was dry I used Aged Mahogany to colour the roses roughly before using a mixture of distress inks to create the leather look. When this was dry I added protection using mod podge.
I've not listed the whole process as I posted a step by step in March. If you would like to see how, click here.
I am adding this to the Sisterhood of Snarky Stamps: 57 -E is for Embossing Challenge.
