Not Just Cards - Delightful Digi's Olly the Owl

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are enjoying the summer. Yes we are still away and this is another scheduled post this time for the Not Just Cards challenge blog. The them is always "Anything Goes" so why not join in for a bit of fun.  Don't forget your makes don't have to be cards. I used an image and backing papers from Delightful Digi's who are one of the sponsors this month. The images and backing paper came from the the O-Sew- Sweet collection.

I decided to decorate my journal cover it was plain brown and needed some jazzing up. I will let you into a little secret this journal is with me on the cruise. I write a diary entry everyday it is much cheaper to buy plain journals and decorate them myself. I used Olly the Owl image and the Patchwork quilt  background in Purple. 

I coloured Olly with Promarkers. He is in a frame that has flowers in the corner. 

I printed Olly three times but I only coloured the flowers on two I cut them out and added them to the main image. I finished everything off with ribbon and die cuts. 

I love having the freedom to decorate the journals how I want it makes a nice change from making cards. I do hope that you have a good week. I will be back by  the end of the week actually on my husband's birthday.  

Happy Crafting.

Hugs Jackie
