Hello everyone..

I have not written my title yet, normally that is the first thing I do, as I have no idea what to show you..I better look in my pictures and choose or we could just sit here and chat all night..

Okay, I got it..I covered my new Art Journal book..

Nine pictures..and to think I started out from the very first glue down of papers and showed step by step then lost the lot somehow while importing them..gone.

So I just took a load of photos showing all that I stuck down, cut out, recycled,,splattered, stickers, and painted, found, stole..[ did I just say that] right down to the butterfly brooch in the middle..

A lot of letter die cutting and gluing together to make them really thick, the papers were so busy but even they nearly got lost in the process as I kept adding and adding....but I had loads of fun, took about three days I suppose, off and on.

Some of the stickers date back to

So there go, hope you are all still well and safe..take care..and thank you so much for stopping by..

What a shame the step by step photos got lost, I wouldn’t know where to even begin with such a design. Lots of different materials and bits and bobs make this cover look extremely detailed and gorgeous.
