Can't help it, I really do enjoy making things, especially books/journals/sketchbooks. I made these covers from recycled (cereal box weight) cardboard; I use 4 pieces of cardboard glued together, then cover with painted Canson paper. This provides a nice hard cover.

The "paint" is Derwent Inktense pencils, activated with water. The Inktense pencils are useful for such a project because they are permanent. The colors went on fast and furiously--I had fun. Bright, happy colors to keep me cheerful.
