My daughter Valentina loves to cook so I decided to paint an apron for her. I used fabric paints (Lumiere), two stencils by Stencil Girls and black and white permanent markers. For the journaling I used the Irresistible Pico Embellisher.
Inspired by the great artist Robin Mead I created this colorful journal page with lots of sprays, stamps, die cut papers, acrylic paint, black and white markers and images from cards and papers she sent to me.
I waited each color to dry before applying the next one
I took an online class and this is the journal I made after it, it's like a tri-fold book and has two signatures in it. Everything was machine sewn with a very messy stitching. The signatures and buttons were hand sewn.
I dyed some of the fabrics I used and for one of the covers I used Gelli printed paper.
This is how it looks when you open the cover
This is a view of the complete front with the two books
I've been taking bookbinding classes here in Chile and I'm having SO much fun with them!! I already did a few samples with simple bookbinding and yesterday I finished this leather journal, which I must say, I love.
