This is the outside cover of my senior year of high school/freshman year @ U of Iowa journal. It was very Mardi Gras themed. The back cover has broken strands of purple, green, and gold beads mod-podged on. :)
I made the mask by poking eye holes in a piece of white construction paper. Then I baked the paper to turn it a swirly-tea colored material. After I baked it (I had to experiment with temp/time), I lit a match to burn eyes where I had poked the eye holes earlier and around the edges.
Then I mod-podged feathers and confetti like crazy.
