For 2015, the Woodware team will receive some interesting new challenges from "The Mirror Crack'd". This week, we are featuring Journal Covers, which are so much fun to create!
Mine was created using a chipboard book base, with rings through the pages which allow each page to lay flat. However, it is easier to create each page and then insert the rings through the sides.
I die cut papers in the same shape as the book, edged each with some ink to distress them, and inked some edges with Clearsnap Mixed Media ink and embossed with Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel. The edge of the cover page was also treated to a coating of ink and embossing enamel. The blue panel was stamped with the Cling Ornate Border image and embossing in gold as well. Another die cut piece was stamped with the Follow Your Art sentiment in Archival red ink, aged a bit with tan ink, and edged with blue. A little bit of Glossy Accents was applied to adhere sprinkles of Stampendous Color Fragments and Chunky Glass Glitter. A layering of banner cut sections of coarse fabric with lace, twill, and a ribbon tie complete the cover. I hope you'll take the opportunity to play along with this challenge as well. You can find all the details on the Woodware blog as well as the Mirror Crack'd blog.
