Hi everyone! Natasha here with a journal I created using Donna Salazar's Antiquities Collection. This is the first journal I have ever created and I had so much fun making it!
Let me show you all of the yummy products I used!
This flower was created using Donna Salazar's Rose Creations dies. I will be posting a tutorial soon so keep an eye out! :o)
I created the holes to bind the book using the Zutter Bind-it-All. I threaded hemp cord through the holes to bind my journal together.
How awesome is this cluster of sprockets?! The chipboard Nestaboard Sprightly Sprockets are manufactured by Want2Scrap and they coordinate perfectly with Donna's Sprightly Sprockets Dies. I then added the Nestabling that also coordinates perfectly! I layered the sprockets on top of each other using foam squares for added dimension.
The distressed paper around the edges of the corrugated board comes from The Crafty Chronicle.
This gorgeous ornate element is a Design Adhesive by Clearsnap. You just peel and stick the adhesive and add glitter or embossing powder. I used Jasmine Mix'd Media Inx embossing powder to create this beautiful texture.
The background is made of Corrugated Board by Zutter. I added a touch of color using Mix'd Media Inx and embossing powder in the color Chiffon.
The 'dreamer' chippie is manufactured by The Dusty Attic. I have a huge collection of these fabulous chippies that I store on my Clip It Up Main Base and Upper Tier. It is the perfect organizational solution for my chippie collection.
I created this effect on the inside of both the front and back cover by adhering torn pieces of The Crafty Chronicle and Antiquities papers.
Each pocket is made from Artistic Papers. These heavy weight papers are amazing! They are perfect to use with mediums, inks, paints... anything! I inked them with Smooch Spritz to create this look. The pockets were then adhered to corrugated board.
The quotes are cut from The Crafty Chronicle. This newsletter has so many uses and is one of my favorite products! I punched a border along the top of the pocket and hand-stitched the edges.
To add a little more texture, I stamped the corner with embossing ink and applied embossing powder.
The inside journal pages are made from cardstock and the edges were punched with a variety of different border punches.
The back of each pocket divider was altered with white opaque flakes and colored with Smooch Spritz.
The remaining dividers were altered and decorated in the same manner as the first.
The corners of the dividers (and the cover) are embellished with Zutter Rivets. I used Donna's Creative Page Tabs dies to cut tabs for each section.
Hope you enjoyed my journal! Wishing you all a beautiful holiday!
