And here are some pictures of the bookcloth I'm going to use as a spine on an old Bobbsey Twin book I want to recycle into a blank journal.
Front and back of fabric
Back of fabric is covered with a combination of 1/2 PVA glue and 1/2 water,
then covered with tissue paper
Tissue paper/fabric is then covered with another
layer of PVA/water mixture and left to dry completely.
It's fine to use different colors of tissue paper on your fabric.
I started with yellow, ran out of it so I added some pink.
Now I just have to remove the bubbles and creases.
Again, create a joy-filled, creative day for yourself !
