The sort of easy way to decorate a book
Someone on here asked me to make a tutorial on how I make my books so cool looking. So I thought while working on my own clow book I thought I'd make that tutorial. The book I used is hand made, and isn't complete. So I used my unused mini sketchbook to show what the final product looks like. For this project don't do it if the book has a leather cover, I will turn out terrible if you do. And I wouldn't recommend using paint either.

All rights go to me and the wonders of masking tape.
