Hi Everyone! It is a drizzy Monday morning here but this bright altered journal brightens up the day! I made this for my daughter…I want to give her something special as she is about to turn 10…not sure how that happened, but it did! I used to love writing when I was younger - journals, poems, etc. It helped during those teenage angst years to write down all the crazy and jumbled up feelings. I actually still have all my writings from those years though I have little desire to read any of it! LOL Anyway, I purchased a small 5x7 journal from Michael's and altered it using some newly acquired Pink Paisley goodies that I won - I am in love with the Citris Bliss collection - the colors are so bright and cheerful! I monogramed it with my daughter's initials using the Thickers from the collection - this gold is seriously gorgeous!
This deer is absolutely the cutest from the Wood Friends stamp set by The Greeting Farm. I stamped him first with Memento Toffee Crunch ink to color using the "no lines" technique with my Copic Markers. I really like how he turned out and I love the matching die for this stamp set to make fussy cutting a breeze!
