Boho-Chic Journal Cover
This is my last post for Jessica Sporn Designs. I want to thank all the team for being so supportive and generous and especially to Jessica for choosing me.
This time I created a journal cover out of an old book. I started by covering everything with black gesso.
Then I chose this beautiful whimsical tree stencil- Judy's Trees Stencil as my focal image
Covering completely with black gesso too
I rolled magazine paper in different lengths to embellish the cover and applied black gesso again
When everything was dry, I sprayed it with three different pinkish colors by Lindy's Stamp Gang
At this point, I was about to apply white gesso but decided to leave it as you see
Time to paint the tree
As I used cardboard, I felt there was too much dimension so I peel it leaving a thin layer of paper and mounted it on thin cork (which you won't see because I ended covering it with Golden Mica)
To mount it I used two pieces of the cardboard to level the image with the book
I hope you'll have some inspiration to alter any old book you have.
Until next time!
