Seems like World Card Making Day turned into World Card Making Month on the Paper Wishes Message Board. One of the many activities was a Garden Journal swap and cover contest. All of the pages/covers can be seen here.
This is my cover. I used Vintage Roses, Sunshine & Shadows papers, Design Tool 1,
Swirls/Flourishes Dazzles, Chocolate Jute Cord, Word Fragments, Tonic
Dotty Border punch, Bohemian Embellish-abilities, silver fibers and the Fringed Mums
This is a close-up of the focal. I cut various labels from the Design Tool onto white CS and PP. I added "imagine" and "dream" silver word fragments. I wasn't sure aobut the quilling die when I got it, but I really like the flowers it makes. I used 2 strips of the medium and large cut PP - I didn't plan on the color gradient, but it sure is a pretty, happy accident. I added 2 brown felt flowers (not sure where they are from) along with 2 red flower brads and the black Dazzles.
These are not the usual colors I like to work with,but I really like how the whole thing came out.
There were just a few people in the swap, but I plan to add blank pages and use this journal as an art journal as I delve into "mixed media".
Thanks for stopping by!
