The current challenge at Crafty Creations is #324"For the Home"
so I thought I'd start a new journal /inventory of my garden
as it does tend to run away with me quite a bit...
I had kept this book that my eldest started when he was about 9.
(never got past 3 pages lol)
I gathered some floral papers as I am also taking inspiration from
I again matched my promarkers before colouring my focal image...
"Ice Flower" from SBS Toxic Kidz(again prob discontinued)
I like to get messy in the garden,
so I edged the book cover with dark brown embossing powder on glue...
which gives a yummy muddy look
(though it did take overnight to set properly on the plasticky book cover)
I was working to a sketch from Tuesday Throwdown #311
and needed 3 small matching elements.
I punched out some paper flowers and used my makers again to match them to the papers
and made my own scrunchy roses...
matted and layered all my elements to the sketch design...
and added a little definition to the frame to tie in the image.
All in all this cover reminds me of back in the 70's
when brown was funky lol
I deliberately left space at the bottom to add a title to the journal
and simply used rub on letters to add
"In My Garden"
Enjoy :D XXX
