Fairy Whispers - Altered Journal

Hi there!  Today I have a really cool altered miniature journal to share with you.  

Isn't that neat?!  Well ok, this is not the best pic but the rest are much better..I promise.

See better right ;D  I started out by layering scraps of papers from my workspace on the cover.  Then applying layers of pink and purple using Dylusion inks and paints.  I used a stamp from Glitz - Afternoon Muse and embossed with metallic powder.  This stamp was my inspiration for the whole design.

I added more texture using 3-D enamels in gold.  I did some more embossing around the edges, this really helped give the journal the look of leather.  I used a white Signo pen to outline the letters to help them stand out.

I applied all of the same treatments to the back of the journal for a cohesive design.

I added some sheer ribbons and charms to my stash.

At this point I really felt like something was missing so I started digging through my rubons and found these beautiful Prima rubons from their Reflections collection.  All of the flowers and butterflies are just what my journal needed to come together.  Finally I added a little sparkle using some Stickles and I was done.  This is the first "fairy" themed project I've ever done so I was wasn't sure at first but I love the way it turned out in the end.  I think I'll definitely be doing more of them!

I'd like to WELCOME my newest bloggie friend Rosie!!  Thank you so much for stopping by and following along!  Have a beautiful and creative day!!
