I wanted to create a gift swap for an upcoming demonstrator’s group meeting tomorrow morning and wanted to submit an item for this week’s The Paper Player’s "Anything Goes Challenge" PP22 (see http://www.thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/ for more details).
I decided to decorate a journal in a vintage collage style using Friends Never Fade- I hope whoever receives this journal likes it:-)
To create this journal:
The main focal image was created using the floral image stamp from Friends Never Fade with Versamark Ink and Black EP on Very Vanilla cardstock.
The other floral image from the same stamp set was embossed with Black EP on retired DP from the Hostess Pack. Sponge Crumb Cake ink over the embossed images using a Sponge Dauber, and also use Basic Black over the edges on the Crumb Cake DP embossed layer.
I stamped and distressed a piece of the Newsprint DP and used multiple scraps from my cardstock stash for the other layers.
Topped it off with a few Antique Brads, Chantilly Lace and the 1 ¼” Black Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.
Stamp Sets: Friends Never Fade, En Francais
Cardstock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, retired Hostess DP
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Thanks again for visiting- have a blessed weekend!
