A while back I found a tutorial on Pinterest showing how to make a cover for my journal out of plaster. The tutorial was made by Ivy Newport and it’s worth your time if you are wanting to learn how to make a plaster journal cover as I have. Ivy is quite delightful and I really like the music she chose for cheerful listening while she worked through her project.
Although I have finished my plaster cover, I am still not sure what I want to paint on it, so it remains blank. But here’s a picture of how it turned out:
The cover turned out so cool! It’s very smooth after sanding it down and I cannot wait to paint on it.
I have finished three of the journal pages within, and I wanted to show one of them to you. I really like how it turned out, kind of vintage style and I think I’m going to put a version of it on canvas. I have two special family members that have requested a picture and I think this may be it. We’ll see what happens. Here’s a close up of the page and you can see the rest of it on my Daily Art Journal page. I call it “Luke 9:57”.
I noticed that Ivy said she had taken some classes with Jeanne Oliver, so I looked her up and found out that she is a beautiful Christian artist. I decided to go through her “Becoming/The Unfolding of You” free video course and it is beautiful and I love it. Again, if you are looking for something to do this summer with some fellow Christian women, I highly recommend this course. It’s worth it.
Here’s a part of that journal page I wanted to share with you. I hope you enjoy it 🙂
