Right now he's singing me a song of inspiration. I have a bucket of Washi tape, and haven't used some in a long time, so his song stirred my need to put the tape to good use. First, I covered the cover with diagonal strips. Then I followed a tutorial to create feathers from Washi tape, which I placed at the top of my cover, and added a button to the trio which reads, "Be the change you want to see in the world." (Really, it's a wonder what I can find now that I've organized and labeled my craft supplies!)
I finished off the cover with my name, my Muse (Carl, of course, colored with Copics and colored pencils), and then added some lace, leather beads and baubles to the spine. I couldn't wait to dig into the journal and have filled two pages already!
