Hi everyone! I was recently asked back by Cheery Lynn Designs to do another month of guest work for them, so here is my first project this month using their gorgeous dies! I've been admiring the beautiful new steampunk designs Cheery Lynn came out with recently so I'd been itching to try a mixed media style journal cover using a few of the new die cuts. I was thinking to make a 'diary' style journal, something that would be handled more as opposed to an 'art journal', so I wanted to get a nice embossed look to the cover and not go too 3D with the embellishing. So using the Cheery Lynn steampunk die cuts seemed like the perfect solution to getting that subtle embossed design for my cover.
I thought I would record my process as I created the cover so that you all could watch the process, I always think a visual is sometimes a lot easier to follow than writing down the instructions, right? So grab yourself a cup of coffee (or tea) and take out a few minutes to watch the process :)
I hope you enjoyed my video tutorial! Here are a few close-up photos of the cover design as well as a photo of the back of the cover....
