Diva Journal!

Is there a fabulous lady in your life who qualifies as a Diva?  I have one in mind for this gift journal as her long-awaited graduation gift is a trip to Paris where I’m sure she’ll be writing notes, saving ephemera and doing a little sketching in famous museums.  If you have an artistic Diva in your circle of friends this is a one of a kind handmade gift she can treasure.


Directions:

1.  Create a Master board.

2.  Cut a piece of the Master board to fit on the cover of a purchased art journal, emboss edges.

4.  Remove the journal cover and adhere the Master board panel to the first page in the book and another panel on the back side of the book.
