Dream Journal by Marie Johansson

Hello crafty souls! I´m here today to share a junk journal style notebook cover that I made using the Fortune-teller Collection. I have a friend who always writes down everything that is important to her. She use plain notebooks that she has stacked up on the table beside her bed. As her birthday is coming up – I decided to make her a more pretty sample to keep on the bed table.

I bought a plane hard cover notebook and painted it with black gesso before adding a piece of old lace to get texture. When dry I layered pieces of papers from the collection mixed with burlap, lace and paper bags. I fussy cut out the round shape with the eye from the “Soul” paper and attached it on a piece of delicate chipboard. Tags & stickers from the collection where tucked in between the layers of papers. And my favourite part of the cover is the see trout pebble with a die-cut element piece underneath. I covered the back in a similar way a the front, but did not use as “bulky” decorations as in the front. Inside the cover I added more patterned papers and created pockets with old bags and tucked in a couple of tags.
