To create the back cover I used chipboard since its thicker then cardstock. I covered it in wrinkled tissue paper for texture using gel matte medium and painted it using latex and acrylic paint. I used label paper and rice paper to create some of the pieces. I also used masking tape, labels, stickersm acrylic paint pen and Sharpie Brush Pens.
I had a hard time finding a rock but eventually I found one. I actually used two rocks. Basically my pet rock has a pet rock. I gessoed both rocks and painted them using acrylic paint and Faber-Castell Brush Pens. For one of the rocks I used gears, pebbles, tubes and a few other items. I also created a little back story for my pet rocks which I included in the journal.
