New Journal

I collect (ahem.....among many other things) craft/art books. One that I've had for a little while now is Creative Awakenings by Sheri Gaynor. In this book the first project is to deboss aluminum for the cover of a Book of Dreams Journal. Several weeks ago I sent for and received the aluminum and tools I needed. It has taken me this long to figure out the process and finished the journal covers today.
The front cover:

the inside of the covers: some glossy cardstock I scraped with paint on one of my "painting" days:
