There is something about writing in a journal or sketch book everyday. Maybe it’s the fact that you document little tid bits of your day, a memory of something or sketches of things you love. I remember when I was a little girl I had a diary with a key. I loved that thing SO much until one day I went to write in it and could not find the key. I guess I was so paranoid that someone would read what I wrote that I hid the key in a spot that I couldn’t even remember! I think that was an early detection that I had ADD. I wish I still had that diary…
Today I will show you how to decorate a Sketchbook to reflect who you are! It’s super fun and every time you look at it you will smile. I promise.

I love Cosmo Cricket stickers! They are absolutely my FAVORITE.
Find stickers or words that make you happy and would encourage you to write and place them on the cover. Have fun with it! I wanted my cover very simple but you can put any sticker that makes you happy inside.
Once you place your stickers on the cover coat the entire cover with Mod Podge. You can use any finish that you would like.
Don’t worry about the stickers coming off. The one thing I love about Cosmo Cricket stickers is how thick they are. They almost feel like card stock which I like!
When you put the Mod Podge on it will look white like this picture. I promise when it tries it will be translucent.
The next thing I did was put a little Mod Podge on my plate and sprinkled glitter in it. I used Martha Stewart’s coral pink.
Mix it good together with the Mod Podge!
Then coat your journal anywhere you would like. I did the side to add a little bit of color to it. Remember when it dries it will be clear the and glitter will shine bright like a diamond!
This is the final product! Now my stickers are on for good and the glitter will never come off. Every time I look at this I smile.
What will you put on your journal?
