DIY Day Book Album Cover

Hello, Bloggy Peeps!
I recently designed the cover of my Amy Tangerine day book . I really enjoyed the creative process that went into designing the cover and did my very best no to over -think it, which can be difficult for me at times ( believe it or not). The best advice I can give you when attempting to design your own (album cover) is to just commit to whatever decision you make and don't fiddle around with it to much because it might keep you from even attempting to start. I find that in crafting the hardest part is just the  "starting process" because at least for me, I tend to want things to just look perfectly designed but "what is perfectly designed??".  " Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" as the old saying goes and not everyone will like your design but at the end of the day if you like the design that's all that really matters. I guess the point I'm trying to make is that you should be crafting for " YOU" and no one else but you and it will be perfect! On that note ( I do hope you like my design) or at the very least it inspires you to start a project you have been scared to begin if your interested in seeing the creative process on this cover checkout my youtube channel on the side bar where I have " DIY" video on this album cover.

I love creating my own elements ,so I designed all the mini circles you see on the page. It was my attempt at creating ones similar to the Studio Calico ones but with my own twist.
