Journal ......

Decided to make a Passport Journal using an Eileen Hull Sizzix Die (inspired by Corrie Herriman)......

I used re-cycled packaging card as the base for the front Covers. I then applied some texture paste through a stencil. This was allowed to dry before painting with pigment mica powders in greens and blues using an acrylic fixing medium to make paint which I applied with a brush. The side front and back panels were covered in more Gel Prints.

The spine was cut from white card and also painted in a similar fashion. The covers were then applied to the spine (I only used a single thickness for one signature of 4 double white card pages within). I then edged the panels with gold embossing powder and Versamark ink, melting with a heat gun. I also applied some gold Krylon pen to the raised diamonds.

I then stamped the front and back panels with some AAll & Create stamps and Archival inks in Sepia and dark blue. I then stamped a couple of feather stamps on a Gelli Print background in Versafine black ink. Trimmed these out and applied as shown with gloss gel medium.

The signature consists of 4 double pages (to be decorated later) and is held in place with some gold-covered elastic thread from the inside and tied firmly in a bow on the outside. I finished the journal with some white Posca pen lines and a little metal clip to hold the journal closed.

Really enjoyed making this and will be making more no doubt ......
