I do hope that you have had a very good day. This is the last post from me you will be pleased to know. Our day didn't work out as we thought it might we were at the hospital a lot longer than we expected. So we went to Port Solent for a meal and then we saw the Eddie the Eagle film which I can thoroughly recommend.
The new challenge starts today on the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog and the theme is Anything Goes with a twist to use chipboard, stencils or flowers the sponsor is The Dusty Attic an Australian company who produce laser cut creations and embellishments.
I decided to decorate a journal cover. I write a journal everyday I have been doing it for about 26 years. Just recently I realised that it was much nicer to buy plain journals and decorate them myself.
The background was created from Kraft card using the Faux Leather technique there is a tutorial showing how to do this at the top of my blog.
The flowers were made with my Sizzix Bigz Tattered Florals die I used felt and leather to create them. I added leaves cut from paper with the Faux Quilled Leaves die set.
There was a space on the cover and I wasn't sure how to fill it and them I remembered my butterfly dies I cut one from brown card and used gold gilding wax on it.
I am looking forward to writing in this journal. This is the last post from me for today. I am going for a lay down in a dark room. Enjoy the weekend. Take care.
