Hi Everyone! I’ve never created a junk journal before so I decided to give it a try. I’m still gathering all my papers for it and looking at the papers I noticed a flower theme. To start my project I decided start with my journal cover.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with stencils and mediums to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own because I do love to use them.
I used a piece of cardboard I had in my stash and added TCW690 Summer Burst stencil in pencil.
Using an X-Acto Knife I cut through the top layer of the design and pulled it off.
I try to use the more simple stencils without to much detail. If you want to try a more detailed stencil, shade in the areas you are going to cut away. It makes them easier to see.
For right now I think my carving is done on the cover. I may cut away a few more details with a different stencil design but not sure. I will leave it as it is or paint it.
I’m not sure how I will finish the cover yet. I will do something similar for the back cover. Once I have all the papers I want to add for the inside I will finish the cover and bind it all together. I love using what I have on hand.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
