Book Cover

This book covering was a very quick and easy project. It looked so pretty when I made it that I had to share it.
I've been wanting to cover the book that I use to write notes during my teaching practical in something pretty. I decided after all off my Pinterest browsing that it would be nice to upcycle some old magazines. I went through the magazines looking for blue images, patterns and backgrounds. I then cut these into rough blocks (the washi tape covers the messy edges later) and arranged, then stuck them onto the book in my pattern. I then covered all the borders between pictures with washi tape. I stuck down the vertical pieces of washi tape first and then the horizontal pieces.

I think that this might look better if the main image (seahorse) was in the center of the page.
