I have a cover of my last journal in the files section under my name
patty van dorin. I will usually put a paper on the front and back.
Just covering the marble part. This journal I used a wallpaper I had
found at a thrift store. I use a gel medium as my glue. I then add a
strip of fabric for the spine, I like usuing fabric as it is more
flexible when opening the journal. I will then add bits of paper
that are left over from other projects or papers I had collected
during the time I worked in the Journal. Like the tag with the key
ring, since I had my new car back to the dealership so many times
that month, I thought it was appropriate to add one of the key tags
to the front. I then seal the front with more gel medium and if I
had rubber stamped the cover (which I did after I posted this
photo). I will spray with a sealer like Deft Clear Wood finish.
The inside of my cover and back, I just use it for a begining and
