SCRAPBOOK JOURNAL COVER
This Color Wheel Flower board is destined to become the front cover of a scrapbook when this project is complete. I will add a second 12” x 12” x 1/8” birch plywood piece for the back cover to the book.
I can drill three to five, 1/4” evenly spaced holes along the left edge of both boards, approximately 3/8” in from the edge that will hold 1” to 1 1/2” loose leaf rings. The loose leaf rings can be opened to add my 12” x 12” scrapbook page layouts.
I have been exploring handcrafted journals lately which lead to turning the flower pattern on my plywood board into something unexpected.
While a nice painting of an Oriental Poppy, done in realistic colors, would have worked well, changing the coloring into a color wheel adds that fun and surprising factor to my scrapbook cover.

Prepare your birch plywood board by sanding the surface with 220-grit sandpaper. Work the sanding in the same direction as the grain lines of your wood to avoid leaving fine cross-grain lines that can show up during the painting steps.
Remove the dust with a lint-free cloth.
Crumple a large sheet of brown kraft paper and scrub the surface of your board. Kraft paper acts as a very fine sandpaper, removing any wood fibers, leaving the wood with a soft, polished sheen.
Center the printed paper onto the face of your board. Tape the top edge of the pattern with several pieces of Painter’s tape – low tack masking tape.
Slide a sheet of graphite tracing paper under the paper with the graphite surface facing the wood.
Use an ink pen or pencil to trace along the pattern lines.
Remove the graphite paper, pattern, and Painter’s tape.
Print one copy of each of the patterns.
