Hi everyone! I’m back with another project this week that I created using the Wrapped Journal Diecut and an assortment of inks from ClearSnap.
I inked my glass tray with Nutmeg Blends Ink ,add water and painted the outside of the journal and both inside spines with watered down ink and let dry. Next I loaded several Art Daubers with the following inks: Mercantile: Candied Yam and Red Barn, Cornucopia: Pumpkin Spice Inks and lightly rub over the outside/inside in random spots on the journal to emulate woodgrain texture on the cover. I inked the glass tray with Flagstone and Coconut Blends Inks,added water to each color and loaded a paint brush with watered down Flagstone ink and splatter on the outside cover and inside spine and let dry. I completed the same steps as with the Flagstone ink with the Coconut ink and let dry.
I cut and adhere patterned cardstock to the inside of journal and strung elastic cording to the inside of the spine and tie off.
I cut from watercolor paper a set of leaves from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and took one small leaf diecut and ink with Coral and Dandelion Premium Dye inks and shape. Once dry I inked with the Clear Embossing Pad and add Copper Embossing Powder to the clear embossing and set with the heat tool. I completed this step again for each of the following embossing powders: Gold Sparkle and Opalescent.
I cut three pieces of cardstock in various sizes to create a flap for the front smaller cover and adhered. I punched a small hole in the center and at the end of the flap and add decorative brad. I cut two more pieces of cardstock to cover the back of the brad on the inside cover.
I cut 28 inches of hemp cording and fold in half and tied securely around brad.
I wrapped cording around journal and tie a knot about an inch under the brad, add three beads and tie off. Cut off excess cording. As always I welcome comments or questions about this project.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
