Faux suede double journal

I’ve been wanting to try this out for a long time, but finding Liquid Appliqué in Sweden wasn’t that easy… However, my CT-mom Haylie at CropStop decided to take it into the store, and the rest is history… I’ve used several of them by now!

I cut the outside covers 12×17 cm and the inner cover 13,5×17 cm, the inside pages at 11,5×15,5 cm.

Spritz out Liquid Appliqué in brown and a little black on a palette or craft sheet.

Use a brayer to roll it on the outside of the covers.

Let dry overnight.

Heat using heat gun or embossing tool, and watch the faux suede appear…

The insides of the covers and both sides of the inside cover are painted with Crackle Paint. Decorate them as you please.

Stamp on the inside pages, I’ve used both handmade paper from Svartvik Paper and regular cardstock.

I used Swivel Clasps and Ball Chains as closure, attached to the book binding rings.
