Industrial themed Mixed Media Journal Cover with Aga

Good Morning all Lindy’s fans. I was thinking about what to show you today and I came up with an old book cover for a new journal.

I made a 3D cardboard door on the cover and it looks fabulous!  This cardboard set can be arranged in various ways what makes it more interesting.  To add color to my journal cover I’ve used the new set of Lindy’s Magicals, Mountain Meadows, which amaze me with their colors and my favorite set of Lindy’s mists.  I also used hot embossing before adding the colors to enrich the project. I think it gives a nice final effect to the surface.


  • I use a crackle accent to glue AB Studio foil as it is ideal for gluing the material to the surface and it binds very fast.
  • When there is too much gold on the surface you can easily scratch it off. It is a result of the too high temperature of the iron.
    The color of the foil can be scratched off from the place without a printing
  • To finish, it is worth protecting the whole surface with spray varnish. The journal is to be used so it’s best that it doesn’t smudge when touched and handled later.

Basic process

  • Apply white gesso to the cover and allow to dry
  • Then you need to stick all 3d cardboard on the cover
  • Now it’s time to add Lindy’s colors (please watch the video for more ideas)

Here is a look at the details.
