Mosaic HeART Journal

Hello Creative Friends! Jenn here with a new Creative Paperclay® project to share with you. This mosaic heART journal was so much fun to create.

For the tiles, I used both Creative Paperclay® Modeling Material and Delight® air dry modeling compound.
Additional supplies used:
Several rubber stamps in various patterns
Hot glue gun and glue
Clay shaping tools
Rolling pin
Cutting utensil
Acrylic paints in teal, fuschia, and green
White Gesso
Plain notebook or journal hardbound

One of the many great things about Creative Paperclay® and Delight® is the amount of detail you can achieve by stamping into it. This is how the tiles are created. Using a rolling pin, roll out clay to desired thickness and cut into various sized tiles. Next, use rubber stamps to press into the clay and create the patterns.

Use a hot glue gun to adhere them to the cover of the journal. Roll out a long piece of clay to cover the outer binding. Press a pattern into this strip as well. Once all of the tiles are in place, allow the clay to dry overnight. Cover with white gesso and let dry.

Finally, paint the tiles using an array of bright acrylic paints as shown.

To add a little flair to my cover, I molded a heart using Creative Paperclay®, painted it to match, and adhered to the front!

Both Creative Paperclay® and Delight® are amazingly easy to work with and can be used for a wide variety of projects.

Thanks so much for viewing my post today! I hope it inspires you to get creative!
