If you're new to Art Journal Every Day, there is a short introduction here. All of the previous posts can be found archived here. Remember, it's just ten minutes of nourishing your creative self every day! No need to finish anything or even like it. If you've done some art journaling this week, use the hashtag #artjournaleveryday so that we can all take a peek. Even if you're not on social media, you can see everything (from twitter, pinterest, instagram, and facebook) that uses that hashtag here.
As I mentioned last week, I love binding my own journals. For me, one of the most enjoyable parts of creating a new journal is creating the cover. Over the years I've created all kinds of covers -- wood, painted canvas, polymer clay, paper, fabric, and even embedded some interesting things including a vintage door knob plate.
This week I decided it was time to try something new. Watch the video to see the journal cover come together!
And here's a look at the cover:
You can see how wet and shiny the dried Tar Gel looks:
