For a swap I bought some cheapo' diaries, and decided to change the cover to make it more in theme with the swap. Here’s the finished project:
Front:

Back:

How it was made:
Start with a cheap diary:

Using paint make a sheet full of images, in this case they are Alfons Mucha’s artworks:


Then cover the diary with glue. Stick the paper, making sure to leave no bubbles. Now cover the whole diary with contact paper to make it waterproof. And viola! Enjoy your new cool diary.

Thanks you! Yeah I changed all those cheap diaries I bought to make them more "presonalized"
