Kraft Tex Journal

Hi crafters (:o)

I had a play with Kraft Tex last weekend and made a journal

I've sewn in 5 signatures by hand

Kraft Tex from C&T Publishing comes in three colours. Natural, white and black and it's actually a tough, touchable new paper that performs like fabric and it's washable.

I had a play with the natural version first i've bought at Amazon

I've cut a piece from the roll and washed it. Still wet i've crumbled it up

As the piece was dry i gave it a treatment with Distress Reinker/ water mix
( Vintage Photo/ Walnut Stain)

Stamped with background stamps and black Archival Ink. 
I've also applied the ink around the edges

Finally a layer of Matte Medium
Left side with / Right side without the Matte Medium

It almost feels like leather

For more information / ideas i recommend to watch the video 

Try something new! (:o)

Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments

Wow - that looks like a really useful product. I love your aged and weathered album cover - so beautiful. Sorry I've missed so much - real life has been stealing too much of my time! I'm off to have a browse of your inspirational work...
