I've been making journals with custom polymer clay covers for many years. Lately, I have been getting back into painting and drawing. Right now, I am playing with alcohol ink in conjunction with Prismacolor pencils, gel pens and metallic pens and having a lot of fun. Then, an idea popped in my head, why not try using one of these little paintings/drawings to decorate the cover of a book? So, I did a little research on what I could use to seal the surface of the art and what adhesives to use to attach it to a book and...this is the first result! I'm pretty happy with it. What do you think?

I listed it in my Etsy shop here…  in case you are interested. There are other photos of it as well.
