"Steampunk" notebook cover


I have been wanting to try my hand at the whole "steampunk" look in a craft, so this is what turned out.

I plan to bind paper and make it into a journal or something like that. Hehe!

I began with cardboard, painted over it and made the bends for the spine.

With lighter brown, I did two stripes of cardboard to add somewhat of "hinges" for the book.


This is the finished product BEFORE I added gold spray paint ...

Some of the pieces and scraps are made of polymer clay (by myself) and obviously others aren't.

 (Btw, is it illegal to spray paint a penny? Because I might go to jail for being the first person to do so. JAHAHAHAH!

Ahem! Sorry, couldn't resist that. XD

Close up.

I'll post when I have done the paper binding and it it truly finished.
