Polymer Clay Journal Cover Cherry Blossoms


I love the look of delicate cherry blossoms. I am not a girly girl but something about these flowers always brings a smile to my face. They are often associated with Oriental art too. I was inspired to create some journal covers after finding some inexpensive Moleskin journals that were a little plain for my taste. I knew they would look better embellished with polymer clay of course! So come create along with me as I make a cherry blossom polymer clay journal cover featuring a silkscreen stencil, cane work, molding and more! Don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss a thing. You can find the supplies in our shop at http://www.createalong.com

Silkscreen stencil: SHOP
Cherry Blossom Mold: SHOP



As you see I created 2 different versions and colors so you can customize it to your liking. I decided to just add a wisp of acrylic paint to the petals of the flowers with a small tipped paint brush for a finishing touch. I baked them and when they came out of the oven I laid them flat and made sure they stayed that way while they cooled.You can put a heavy book or something on top of them while they cool if you want. It was a fun project and now I have 2 journal covers for my journals. Gotta get writing!

How to make a chunky feather cuff bracelet mica shift with polymer clay

Today's tutorial features a totally simple quick way to use mica shift techniques. You don't have to get fussy with mica shift, and when you use the same stamp to create both the flat mica shift areas AND highly textured areas, you get a really nice coordinating design.

Kira used the Feather Your Nest rubber stamp, Peacock Feather silkscreen, Blowing in the Wind feather mold, and a bracelet blank to create this project. You can get the stamp, screen, and mold in our Feather Your Nest tool collection, or get them separately.
