I chose my Flowers Feed the Soul Journal to show today!
This journal features some of the Media Mixage blanks and matching die templates. You can find downloadable directions for this book on Spellbinders website here. I'm not going to repeat all the directions since they are available to download.
The butterfly is a metal blank from SPellbinders Butterflies One blank set. It has paper pieces glued to the wings. I cut the paper with the Sellbinders die template: Spellbinders™ Butterflies One which matches the blank set. To add color, I've applied pigment ink and heat embossed it with clear. I sprinkled a touch of gold embossing powder over top and heated it.
The little paper flowers were cut with Spellbinders™ Flowers One die template set. Two of the flowers are metal blanks: one is peaking out from under the pink flower and the other is the center aqua flower on the big blue flower. It's colored with ink and heat embossed with clear. These are part of the set Spellbinders™ Flowers One blanks set.
I've also used a Media Mixage die template set for the verse label - Spellbinders Frames One. I inked through the die to add the shading around the edges. The verse is from Flourishes stamp set "From the Garden".
The background rectangle and frame were cut with Spellbinders™ S5-171 A2 Round Corner Basics A. I used 2 dies nested together to cut the frame. The frame has been embossed with
M-Bossabilities So Trendy. I stamped a branch from Penny Black's "A Wish for Peace" clear set with black ink, and then added nail polish to the dots on the branches. I stamped the same branch on the book cover.
The journal itself has chipboard covers covered with light Kraft packing paper and designer paper on the inside. I added My Mind's Eye paper to the outside of the covers. Inside, there are pages for notes and sketches as well as envleopes that divide the paper sections and add a place to tuck seeds and garden notes.
