My First Polymer Clay Journal Cover...The Pirates Treasure Map!
I've wanted to create a journal cover for so long now, I've just been putting it off. It seemed like it would consume quite a bit of clay & my supplies are always limited. So I started small...just a tiny composition notebook...3 1/4''x4 1/2''. First I reinforced the cover with some recycled cardboard & then I went to work...& yes I baked it on the notebook, although I probably wont next time. It did curl up the pages a tiny bit.
The Pirates Treasure Map
It's a coastal map of Florida, a common pirate haunt. There are a lot of sunken ships along the Floria coast, where treasure seekers roam the waters. So I created this journal cover as a tribute to Pirates & Treasure seekers alike. Using Premo clay, my dotting tool & a few of my molds, I went for it! I really like the way it turned out & I'm already working on another...A Simple Valentine. I'll share it next time!
So thank you so much for stopping by...Till Next Time!
