Handmade Journal Cover.

Hi friends! I know I've been hit and miss the last few weeks but I just can't seem to get caught up! I am so behind on projects needing to be finished that it has my head spinning. Several of these projects are requiring much more time than I had anticipated with a few of them being given as gifts over the next few weeks.

I did however, finally finish the above journal cover that will be going to a very close friend for her 5 year wedding anniversary next month. She wanted a vintage feel and that was right up my alley. I used a gorgeous vintage image from my LUNAGIRL CD collection and a sheet of the Classic K boxed paper collection from K and Company for the background.

I created the flower embellishments by taking a sheet of aqua blue card stock and glimmer misting it with a pretty blue and then wetting and wrinkling it several times. I did the same thing with a darker shade of handmade paper and trimmed all the layers with stickles. The centers are rhinestone cluster brads from Oriental Trading Company. The cover will go over a coordinating backing attached with binding rings and filled with lined journal paper. I am seriously relieved that it is done and on to the next project as we speak.
