Hello Mad Scrappers!
As soon as I saw the leather texture paper
from Prima I knew it would make a great faux leather cover for my next junk journal. I started by folding the sheet in half and cut a piece of 6 x 12 card into two cover sections and a spine. I glued these pieces into the leather paper using Finnabair Soft matte ge
l and stitched around the edges to finish the faux leather effect.
To create the basic signatures for inside the junk journal I used the gorgeous Vintage Remnants
papers from 49 and Market along with an assortment of old book pages and music sheets. These papers have a great thickness to provide support for the lighter weight papers in the signatures. I stitched the pages of the signatures together and used jute string to attach these to the cover.
I hope this simple junk journal gives you some ideas of what you can create with this versatile faux leather paper.
