Create, don't doubt by tishaia Create, don't doubt by tishaia
I don't know about you, but I often doubt in my skills or abilities. And for me the best way is to force myself into creating again. The start is often difficult but about 1/3 in I usually already feel better. When I saw this quote I knew I have to make something with it, and what's better than a notebook, a tool for creating? :)

It's a perfect gift for someone who you think is talented but maybe need that extra puch to believe in themselves.

The journal base is Canson Art Book One, with 100 sheets of 100g/m2 white paper, perfect for sketching or just writing a new ideas for your stories. It's 10,2 x 15,2 cm (4x6 in).
The cover is made of precolored metallic polymer clay. I used a deep sky blue glass bead and 17 vintage Swarovski zirconias in different shade of blue and green. The upper floral part and the dots on the bottom are touched up with extra fine glitter. The whole item is painted with protective varnish. 

The cover is handmade from scratch, without the use of any molds, stamps or cutters. 
It's ONE OF A KIND.

This journal is in my etsy shop here: www.etsy.com/shop/Tishaia

do you use some special glue to stick the fimo ornaments onto the book cover?
did you the engraving before or after hardening it?
and how did you get the ornaments that flat and smooth? OMG

sorry... so many questions Bunny Emoji-61 (Shy or...) [V3]

I use gel super glue, it's the one you can find in hardware stores, at least in my country ;).
I do everything before baking ^^. After, I just add a layer or two of protective varnish :D.
Ah, I usually start the work with a flat sheet of clay I make using the pasta machine XD.
Hope I helped a little and if you have any more questions, please ask :D.
