Theres still time to take part in the Stampotique Designer's Challenge 'FLOWERS'.
For my contribution, I used one of the sets by Eileen Hull to create this journal.
To begin with I 'applied' ALDI pastel paints (just cheap kids paints) with my fingers ...ok so smeared would have been a more accurate description lol...and glued the panels together. With this set you can lace up the pieces but I preferred a more solid structure (plus the lace thread I had didnt work with the layout I had in mind)
I stencilled and inked areas, highlighted the stencilled circles with pen...and added some stamping directly to the surface
I glued on the letters creating the phrase and added some bits and bobs to decorate...
Added the Giant Daisy and Flamingo & co.
Made an inside pocket to hold pages
