Here’s another DIY book design.
The steps involved are quite similar to what I did with the text design on cover, except that instead of planning the composition on the computer, I made an initial sketch of the design on a piece of paper. Then I drew the design lightly onto the cover with a soft pencil, then went over with a pigment pen. I have used acrylics and collage for this piece too.
Hope you will have a go at designing your own book covers. You can customise the cover by including your name. It will make a great sketchbook.
