I got that ever so popular Finn's Denim Journal too, quite a while ago already. I like its retro look and feel and that's why I couldn't resist getting it. I thought I'd decorate the cover. I kept it retro, at least I think I did. Lots of mixed media on it - gloss gel, textile paints, acrylic inks, mica flakes, gesso, to name a few. Added some lace too and gorgeous Grande Rosette Trim by Prima which I both coloured with acrylic ink and gave highlights with Green Earth Gesso; pieces of Decopatch paper and a round fabric piece (it's a sew on patch by Bright Stem!) to be as a focal point. A little more and I felt it was done.
Entering this to Scrap Africa's Sketch Challenge. I turned that sketch around for me.
All the best,
