Valentine's Day Journal Swap

Here's is what I have been tonight! I have a love themed journal swap that needs to get sent out at the end of next week so I thought I'd upload a few pictures!

Here is the cover. I covered the journal with patterned paper and dry brushed white paint around the edges and all over the cover. I layered two fabric flowers and put a brad through the middle to hold them in place, then used hot glue to adhere onto the cover. The tag in the middle is chipboard as well as the letters in the lower right hand corner. The letters are my partner's initials. To finish it off I put some sparkled pink ribbon.

This is a close up of the fabric flower. Oh I forgot to mention that I also dry brushed white paint onto the flowers as well.

Here is the back cover. Okay I know what you're thinking, that is a really random place for that flower. Well here's what happened...the camera was having an EXTREMELY hard time deciding on what to focus on, the paint or the pattered paper so I had to give the camera something to focus on!

I'm looking forward to starting Valentine's Day projects in about two weeks. If you have an ideas or anything you want to see me try leave me a comment! I think that's all I have for tonight so until we meet again, Happy Scrappin'! SB

  1. Very nice mini-book. The flower shows your colors better. I don't like it when my camera does that to a piece, but I don't know what to do about it. I like the colors on your blog.
    BTW, did you know you can remove that word verification thingy? It really slows down commenting. I removed it about a year ago and have had no problems. Just a thought.
