I love creating my pages on recycled pieces - brown paper bags and brown envelopes.
Your pages don't have to be in the journal or in the book. You can make seperate pages and one day put them together :)
I love this set here !

You have asked me so many times: how to start?!
Here is it video on breaking 20 pages !!!

Journal Cover VIDEO tutorial for Finnabair 'Golden Alchemy'

Hello everyone,

It's Marta Lapkowska here.
I am back to you with another video tutorial where I used my very favourite acrylic paints from Finnabair. Those are a must have products, great coverage, fantastic consistency and amazing colour palette. I love them all and it is very hard to pick my favourite.

This month I decided to alter a journal cover. I used new mechanicals from Finabair, resist canvas and some paper flowers. You can see the whole creative process on the video.

Fun and effective tip to finish off your project is to add gold acrylic paint with dry brush.
I hope this video will encourage you to create your own new look of your journal.

Hugs, Marta xx
