Handmade Art Journal

I incorporated paper and fabric in the design of this art journal. I painted the flowers on the fabric with acrylic paints (fluid acrylics) and stamped the butterflies and script with Staz-on ink. The fabric is sewn onto the paper (for the cover) and then the paper is glued onto the bookboard. I bound the book using the Bind-it All and coils. I covered the coil by making a spine out of the bookboard and paper . This book is one of those projects that I definitely WILL do again. Sometimes I just want to meet the challenge, but this book was a lot of fun to create, from making the cover to painting the fabric, even the sewing!
