Journal Covers - Stampscapes


I recently had a request for a journal that would be suitable for a male. Here are the first two examples.
I started with a lined journal which had a plain black cover, and have used Stampscapes stamps.


 Images were stamped with black India ink on to white gloss card, then coloured with sponged on dye inks. The ship is die cut using a Kaisercraft die and the seagulls using an IO die. Two layers of stamped card have been torn and added to the bottom waves, with the wave tips and the sails highlighted with a stardust pen. This panel was matted to white gloss card, then fixed to the journal front.



This cover is created the same way but has the addition of a shell brad in the bottom left.
Both journals have a pocket envelope attached inside the front cover, and stamped images inside both front and back covers. Each scene has been built up using a variety of several different stamps.

Till next time
