Ao pesquisar por vários sítios na net encontrei um pap bastante modesto mas mesmo assim útil de como fazer e embelezar um album de jardim ou jornal. Retirado do site eHome, segue abaixo:
1E decidi o que fazer, um album sobre a minha horta, com as suas vantagens, os quituques criados com, o que desgostei, o que saiu errado, e assim posso desenvolver e aprofundar as minhas mãozinhas numa outra técnica :) fixe
Open the composition journal and lay it on your work table so that the front and back are facing up. With your choice of acrylic colors, paint the front and back of the journal in random strokes. You don't have to completely hide the journal since you'll be covering it with embellishments. Let dry.
Cover the length of the spine of the journal with a strip of fabric that complements your journal colors. Cut a square of fabric and attach it at an angle to the front (center) of the journal using white glue. Glue a contrasting ribbon around the fabric square as a border.
Attach embellishments (except the buttons and the little straw hat) in a random fashion to the front of the journal with white glue. If desired, glue embellishments to the back cover as well.
Cover the front and back journal covers generously with a decoupage medium to secure the embellishments and make the journal waterproof. Let dry.
Attach the buttons and little straw hat with hot glue. Attach the tassel to one end of the ribbon as a bookmark (slip one end of the ribbon through the opening of the tass
Tips & Warnings
Decoupage medium is "milky" when wet, but dries to a clear finish. Before gluing embellishments, experiment with layout arrangements before securing. Plan about 2 hours for this project.
