A Very Wet Bank Holiday -

So - I made the most of the atrocious weather by making the covers for my September Journal. It really has been a very poor day as far as the weather is concerned but I have to admit to having fun! I can "faff" for England so it really doesn't matter what the weather does. I was going to use the kit I got from Shimelle for this class - but as I was looking for the kit I found a whole stack of 7 Gypsies papers - so I changed my mind!!
I haven't yet made my mind up about binding it - so don't know if I will go with book rings or bind-it-all. I cut all my pages as well & have put all my intended stash together in a zip loc baggie. I feel very virtuous now I might tell you.
The butterfly is a Stampin' Up stamp which I stamped all over the cover in rosy pink ink. I then stamped the butterfly in the same ink, and chocolate brown ink, on scraps of paper before cutting them out and mounting them with 3D foam tape. I covered a small tag with paper before adding the chipboard letters for the "new" which I coloured with the rosy pink ink. The small text is computer generated, printed on patterned paper and the font is Odalisque.
I am pleased with the result and am now looking forward to the class starting.
Please leave a little comment if you stop by.
