Dylusions Dyary Cover Modification (Step by Step Photo Process)

I corrected the covers colours on the leaves and flower as I found them to be too neon and clashing with the rest of the cover. I think it is much better this way.
Cover with Colours Corrected

I decided that I wanted my first Dyary to look a little different than the norm so I decided to modify it. Here is the end result and all the following photos illustrate how I got there!



The Beginnings
Some Tools and the elastic cut off from the Dyary 
Back of Cover with Cardboard applied
Front of Cover with Cardboard applied
Back Cover with Gesso

Front of Cover and Inside Flap with Gesso
Note that I do not normally use Gesso with Dyans paints as they have very good pigmentation. I am using it in this instance as the cardboard is recycled, thin and would dull the vibrancy.
Dyans Brayer Technic

Front Cover with Stencil Layers
Inside Flap To Match Right Inside Page
Back Cover Prepped to Match Front Cover
Back Cover and Outside Flap Finished to Match Front Cover
Krylon Applied to Front and Back of Cover to Avoid Scratching Paint with Extended Use
Note that this would be the only time that I would apply Krylon as it is not needed on any interior pages.
Flap with Holes Punched, Rivets Applied, Ribbon Threaded Through, Velcro Adhered and Corner Metal Protectors Applied.
So of course, when you are experimenting, hindsight is 20/20...lol. I should have tapered the sides of the flap with less of a slope so that it would bend more readily around from the back to the front. As a result of this oops, I decided to embellish it further and sort of hide the error (always a learning curve when creating).

Dylusions Dyary Inside Pocket

While I am waiting for this week to be over, I thought that I would start to tackle the inside of the Dyary. I used Dylusions Paints Vibrant Turquoise, Funky Fuschia and Fresh Lime. Dylusion Stencils are Hexagon Large, Dotted Flowers, Blocks Large, Triangles Small, Diamonds Small, and Old School Numbers. The Believe is from Dyan's Coloring Pages, the Arrow from Dylusions Stickers and the images stuck in the pocket are Dyary Die Cuts that I have colored with Tombow Markers. The tape that I used is Dina Wakleys that I stuck on a Ranger Kraft Sheet and used the leftover paints on the daubers and some of the stencils I had already used. The white pen is a sharpie and the Believe is colored with Funky Fuschia and the letters are gone over with the Dylusions Paint Pen London Fog. I placed the Dyary Clips on the envelope to remind me to use them as they are so cute!
