This time’s journal has become something like a scrapbook page!
I really love creating scrapbook pages, but mostly find that I lack the patience to complete an entire page – not that I have the budget to buy all that stuff I would like to have if I was making one either! 😦 So, I found an alternative! 🙂 –
I have used, again, some tags that came with the clothes I bought – I’ve been wanting to use them on some cards, but somehow, unable to come up with a good idea, they had been just lying around. And so, I thought of using them here. 🙂
I created the background by using some shades of distress inks, and stamping some splotches of distress inks again to create that ‘old and shabby’ paper with some coffee stains look.
While adding the details around the tags, I tried to match up the colors – going for mainly black, brown and red. And I also tried to uniformly distribute the colors around the page.
The rest of the embellishments are pretty simple – mostly punched butterflies and flowers, cut out of the same textured paper. 🙂 The one sticker embellishment came from one of my pattern paper sets, I wish I had more stickers…But, since this is one of those ‘one off’ cases, guess its ok 🙂
Thanks for looking!
