A piece of calico was cut 3cm larger than the made up mount board journal and placed onto a craft mat. Lemon Meringue, Burning Bonfire and MulberryBush paints was painted in horizontal strips onto the calico and then sprized with water to blend, it was then left to dry.
A sheet of Damaged Dots paper was used to line the inside covers and make pen/pencil and label holders.
I made one signature, the cover could hold up to three, from kraft card, all the pages were the same with a pocket for a packet of seeds an space for notes. Before making up the signature each page was decorated on both sides, firstly a wash of white Gee-Sso-Good, then random brush strokes of diluted Lemon Meringue, Burning Bonfire and Mulberry Bush paints. When these were dry Giant Poppy and Giant Peony was stamped over with black ink, finally white Gee-Sso-Good was sponged to provide areas to make notes.
