Boho-Chic Journal Cover by Lizzy Wurmann G., Creative Team Thursday

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'sTrees 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!

We'd love to see what you create with this technique!  Be sure to share it with us on Pinterest and tag us using #JessicaSpornDesigns #CreativeTeam
