My friend Tammy Murdock has introduced me to Tyvek, a fibrous plastic material that is as thin as paper and SO easy to work with!
Tyvek is often melted to create cool bubbly textures, but I've been using it for journal covers - what else! :)
Essentially I painted the Tyvek sheets, collaged on them using some glue and my sewing machine, and then fastened them to composition writing books with an industrial adhesive. The result is AMAZING!
Have a look at my handiwork from last night!
