Floral Abstract Journal Cover by MandarinMoon Floral Abstract Journal Cover by MandarinMoon
I've taken a bound, cloth covered book and embellished it with polymer clay and various found objects and glass gems. It reminds me of a flower and the gems are sparkling droplets of color...of course it is open to your interpretation. :))

I hand painted the book with acrylic paints and attached the polymer clay plaque securely to the top cover. It measures 5.75" x 8.75" and has 100 pages lined on one side and unlined on the other for drawing and writing.

A lot of weirdness coming from me lately...but I just love the abstract shapes *grin*

Thank you very much! It doesn't take much more than a bit of clay, an oven, acrylic paint and odds and ends. :) Go for it!

Thanks! I loved that one too and it started out as something totally different...but my 'art' seems to have a mind of it's own. :D

I have admired your journals for quite a long time. My question is: what do you use to stick the tiles to the cardboard/paper?

Thank you so much! I use an adhesive called Weldbond. It is a white glue that dries clear and is very strong. :D

Oh, thank you so much! I'll google it to see if I can buy it, or if anything has similar ingredients.
