Pop of Pink Altered Journal with Braided Spine

This was one of the journals I made for the craft show I did yesterday. My altered journals are very popular and sell very well.  Included with the journal is a designer pen and a braided book mark.

The journal was purchased as inexpensively as possible, and covered with Pop of Pink DSP. At the edge near the spine, some black rick rack was adhered.  This was die cut using  Tasteful Time die which is unfortunately now retired.

Art Piece:
On a separate piece of Whisper White, the following were stamped: one image of the flamingo which was embossed with Versa Mark and Melon Mambo ink and a pineapple - the bottom in Crushed Curry and the top in Cucumber Green.  Both were fussy cut, the pineapple pieces adhered together

Another Flamingo was stamped onto the Art Piece, and the second Flamingo added as shown.

The remainder of the images, from the stamp set  "Pop of Paradise" were stamped with Cucumber crush ink. The white areas were filled in with the Timeless Texture stamp set.

Pop of Pink DSP was used to matte the art piece, followed by Basic Black card stock.

The completed art piece was adhered to the front of the journal.



The spine was braided using retired satin Melon Mambo ribbon. Some beads were knotted to the ends of the ribbon to give them a more finished look, and also prevents the ribbon from fraying.


The remainder of the pieces of DSP and some scrap Melon Mambo cardstock were used to make the book mark.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Timeless Texturize, Pop of Paradise
Inks: Black Memento, Basic Gray, Melon Mambo, Versa Mark, Cucumber Crush
Papers: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pop of Pink DSP
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, Tasteful Trim die (retired) , Melon Mambo ribbon (retired), beads (non SU)
