Altered spiral Journal

My craft shows are a few months away, but it's never too soon to get ready.  The journals I have altered have always been popular, so I make sure I have plenty on hand.

The journal was covered with Floral Boutique DSP with accents of Night of Navy and a touch of Delightful Dijon with the Moroccan DSP.

The spine is braided with Daffodil Delight  and Night of Navy seam binding, both ribbons being used at the same time.

The focal point is a Sunflower made using the yet to be released Eastern  Mediterranean thinlets.  The "flower" was die cut twice with Delightful Dijon cardstock and then adhered together alternating petals.  A bone folder was used to curl each petal.
The center of the sun flower was made by first die cutting in chocolate chip a circle using the layering circle framelit on top of which was adhered another die cut circle again using the Eastern Mediterranean thinlets.  Dimensionals popped the 2 layers up.  Another die cut circle was adhered to the center.  Some flower soft was applied on top of that.

The leaves were die cut in Mint Macaron card stock using the Stylish Stems framelits, and a stem hand cut with the left over pieces.  The edges were sponged with Old Olive ink before adding them to the flower.

The flower was built on a piece of Whisper White card stock, the backgound of which was stamped with Gorgeous Grunge - first with Delightful Dijon and then  with Old Olive. Before matting it with Night of Navy card stock. the edges were sponged with Delightful Dijon ink

The sentiment, from Grateful Bunch, was stamped with Night of Navy ink on a label stamped from the Rose Wonder stamp set.  It was then die cut, and this die cut matted with another label die cut with Night of Navy.
