Journal cover using a masterboard.

Today it’s my turn to present a piece of work for the Country View Project Blog.

Do you remember the masterboard I made for the challenge blog at the beginning of the month? Well I decided to use part of it to make a cover for a small journal. You can see the full tutorial of how to make the board HERE.

Here are a couple of sneak peeks of the journal cover.

The fun in making your own covers is knowing that no-one will ever have one exactly the same (even me lol). This one though went to a friend for her birthday.

If you haven’t joined in the challenge yet, perhaps you'd like to get out your stencils and have a go at making a journal or notebook cover for yourself and then show it to us on the challenge blog.

Have fun with whatever you are making this week.

From the sneak peek I can tell it is amazing (no surprise there). I always get the covers so messy when I fill the pages I would never dare decorate the covers first.
