Hello there ~ oh my goodness… I made it through to Tuesday!  More on that later!

Here is my second {my favorite!} covered journal; I’m calling it “Copper Flowers.”

 Recognize this design? 

It was one of the Margaret Applin’s new stencil from Joggles, which I debuted awhile ago on fabric… and now on paper:

 {love that coppery perfect pearl paint!} love that stencil!!!

 The outside back side cover below:

 A pretty stack of journals I made, sitting together on the table.  Kind of like food in the pantry, is a couple journals finished!!!  It all represents many hours of happily messing around trying to figure out book covering, and all that mechanical application stuff: 

  The inside back cover:

 And, the back side cover: {i love the orange spots with the purple thermofax screen design}

 Purples… aqua, turquoise... oranges… and copper ~ this was a fun color combo!  These are going to make great gifts!

Here’s to a fun week ahead~hope it is for you too!
Many blessings~
Leslie

  1. I love the gelli prints you made!! All the layers are wonderful, and I love the colors you've used. I was wondering, with the thermofax can you use plain acrylic paints, or do you have to use inks of some kind? I had never heard of the screens until I came across your blog, and now I would love to get some!! The intricate designs are a beautiful addition to your pages, and I would love to try them out!

  2. Love this journal! Did you use a Viva Pearl Pen for the raised copper? Also what is the black doodle that runs across the edge and bottom? I spent yesterday printing, might do it today, too! Highly addictive!!
