To make the front cover of the booklet I used the prototype cover as a template for both the size and placement of holes for the binding.
Softened the corners.
Went over my traced design on the back with a soft pencil.
Made sure it was in the correct place.
Transferred the design using a harder pencil.
Traced over the design with a silver pen and ink.
The finished result is exactly what I was going for; high shine and contrast to the matt paper but a soft hand rendered aesthetic.
