(Click on image to enlarge)I created a "Journal Skin" to cover my weekly planner/journal with, so I can change it out over time. I'm using this weekly planner/journal for The Documented Life Project.
I created the Journal Skin using GIMP 2.8.8. I created an 8 and 1/2" wide by 11" high template page, with a 1.4375" top and bottom seam, and 2" right side seam. I positioned the 5 and 1/8" wide by 8 and 1/8" high cover to the left of the 2" seam. I added a 1 and 1/2" wide by 3/4" high rectangle where the date on the planner was, so it could be cut out after printing.
I used three postcards that I had made in the past to decorate my Journal Skin, and the skin image extends into the book spine area. I printed the skin, along with a second template page that was just the background, folded them along the seams, put them onto the journal, then glued them together with an Elmer's glue stick.
