Clocks ~ Journal

Another journal for today 🙂



For this one I fussy cut the printed title, and inked the edges with Pine Needles distress ink.



Then I used the Big Shot to emboss the strip of cardstock, measuring 13 x 3,5 cm, with the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (that you still can find in the Clearance Rack).



I also embossed my main cardstock, measuring 20 x 13 cm, with a wall embossing folder. This folder gives you a very light texture.



I used the Pine Needles distress ink again.



And attached the title with Stampin’ Dimensionals.



I used Shabby Shutters to lightly distress my background.



And Bundled Sage to distress the clock dies.



Then I pulled out the retired Clockworks Stamp Set,



and used Pine Needles again to distress the edges.



I used the big stamp from the Sea Bubbles Stamp Set (by Designs by Ryn) combined with Forest Moss distress ink. (Note to self: Next time remember to stamp before embossing… If you know what you are doing beforehand.)



And Vintage Photo to ink the edges of the patterned paper, distressing more than edges on the bigger piece.



Then I took out the charms and the Burlap Twine,



attaching them with glue dots, and distressing the edges of the entire sheet with the Pine Needles distress ink.



More Stampin’ Dimensionals, glue dots and liquid glue to hold everything in place, and some gems.

  1. Indeed lovely journal page again! That embossing folder is great :).
    I know what you mean about stamping after embossing – it happens to me a lot! But usually only after embossing and distressing I figure out which stamps I want to use and where they should go, I am not good at planning projects. I don’t know why, but lately brown is one of my favourite colours. It just looks good with about any other colour. I like how you use the little charms – I got loads of charms but hadn’t thought of using them on cards as I bought them to make jewellry with.

    • Thank you Debbie.
      Sometimes I like to sketch some basic ideas I really want to see on my projects because that’s as far as I can go when talking about planning, but then as I go (most of the times) I totally forget about my plans (lol) and I end up just going with the flow of the moment… I knew I wanted that stamp in the corners, what wasn’t on my plans was the embossing folder… So if I had followed the plan, and had done the stamping first my result would have been much better…

      I can’t use gems or other texture things on my bookmarks (out of respect for the book) so, here, on the notebook covers, I just go for it, and I am loving it!
