This is the cover for my latest journal. It was a solid brown cover and had a smooth cover that did not have a shiny finish. I painted it with a creamy white paint. I used a credit card instead of a brush. I love the way that the brown is showing through in places. I then used various fineline perm. pens to doodle on the cover and then colored it in.
