This is my very first one, I used this nice tute http://photojojo.com/content/diy/make-your-own-photo-notebook-journal/   and the pics are from my backyard.

 I used  http://curiouslycrafty.wordpress.com/tutorials/.
I I liked the way it turned out except the glue leaked through the cover  Sad but Lesson learned, use thicker fabric or different glue.

Has anyone tried spray adhesive??

Your books are beautiful. I haven't used spray adhesive yet, but I've found that rubber cement, Mod Podge, and Tacky Glue work pretty well for bookmaking. Wink

i used to use spray adhesive all the time, but the mess got to me, so i switched to wet glues

it works REALLY well, especially on fabric (which wet glues dont)


i think im back....9 months almost to the day but i miss art, and i missed you guys!
