Creative Escape Journal






Well here it is, the 5.5 X 8.5 journal I mentioned I had all ready to distress. I have done the distressing with the Distrezz-it-All tool on both the page edges and the chipboard covers. I used a chipboard tag with brads to form part of the title and the word journal is rubber stamped on watercolour paper, cut with a Nestabilities label and embossed with clear embossing powder. The piece is coloured with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I used Memento Rich Cocoa ink to rubber stamp Hampton Art Passport/Woman Collage near the binding edge. The piece of branch from my yard is stitched on with jute cord. I glued a silk flower in the lower right corner and included one of my faux postage stamps. The binding edge is punched with the Zutter Bind-it-All and tied with torn fabric, lace and ribbons. The top fabric is dyed with beat water and the bottom one with coffee. The back cover has a chipboard Sizzix die cut flower covered withvarious papers. "This belongs to" is from Cornish Heritage Farms Ledger Me rubber stamp set and ny name is the signature line from "Follow your dreams" quote stamp from Quietfire Design. I love this journal even better than "Cherish Every Moment". I guess that will last until the next journal. For now it's time to start filling some of these pages.
