Collaged Journal Cover by Lizzy Wurmann

Hi friends, It’s Lizzy with you today sharing a new video tutorial.

I have made a collaged journal cover in a very  free or messy  style, no rules, not thinking too much, just letting it flow. The only thing I kept in mind was not using more than three colors and one or two neutrals. In this case I used Golden Sleigh BellsOcean Breeze BlueBells of Ireland Green and the neutral Café au Lait.

I started by applying masking tape to a piece of freezer paper and painting it.

 Using multiple papers and fabric pieces I begun my collage

 I assembled the small pieces then sew everything together onto a cotton fabric

I hope you were inspired to create one of your own. It definitely makes my journal look so pretty from the outside.  See you next time!

  1. This is really SO INNOVATIVE Lizzy! I always LOVE LOVE LOVE your work! I need to learn how to sew (LOL!) I inherited a fancy sewing machine that also embroiders and I don’t know the first thing….think I better get it cleaned and take some sewing lessons! I really love when sewing is used. Lisa : )
