Creating Art at the Speed of Life Journal Cover

I found a book called

Creating Art at the Speed of Life: 30 Days of Mixed-Media Exploration by Pam Carriker 

and it looked interesting.  I brought it home and decided to try it.  This is the cover for the journal done with watercolor crayons, water, markers and a little masking fluid on heavy adhesive canvas.   This will be attached on the outside as a cover for the home made journal.  
Cover for Handmade Art Journal
The cover was painted on adhesive canvas pictured above.  After sewing the blank pages for the journal together, I just peeled the back off the back of the canvas and stuck it on like a book cover.  The result is below.  I loved how easy using the adhesive canvas made this.
