After searching around for brightly colored and patterned spine cloth, I finally decided to make my own. and found that it is not hard to do. The process involves bonding fabric to tissue using a product called Heat and Bond Ultra, which is a very strong heat reactive adhesive. This makes a strong and durable spine cloth, and allows me to choose my own fabrics to use. So now, the possibilities are endless.
If you choose to embellish the spines of your journals, be sure do so in a way that allows the beads to move out of the way when working in the book.
The beaded tassels on these journals can be flipped up and out of the way when working in the books.
The covers were hand painted with acrylic paint using masks and stencils that I cut myself.
They should make great Art Journals !
