Creative Embellishments Journals

Hello all, this is a big post today.

I have had the pleasure of working with one of the best crews. My weekend crew has always gone above and beyond. I know patients will be taken care of like they are family. When the things get tough, they alway end up pulling out all the stops and push out 150%. I wanted to do something special as a thank you for all that they have done for me.

I made each one of them a personalised journal. Each one was made with love and compassion. I even left an inspirational note inside thanking them for all that they do.

This Journal for Sam, she has this amazing unicorn collection and I just needed to add to it. I filled in spaces with bits and bobs. I used left over pieces from collections that I only had one or two left. I wanted to use some of the new stuff from the store as well and grabbed the Alphabet Game Pieces.

I wanted to add detail to the background on each of the journals. I love texture to I use a thick corse paste with the grid stencil on this particular journal.

Here are a few more close-ups.

This journal was made for Heather, she knew I was making some journals, But she fell in love with this one. I knew she just had to have it. I did the same texture on the background but only with the Distress Checkered Stencil. I added the Cross Stitch Boarder in the background and built the composition up around that. I threw in a medium gear or two to fill in the spaces and topped it off with a metal dragonfly casting.

I added the Alphabet Blocks and Distress Pattens Stencil to this Journal. I added a few more bits and bobs to fill in the composition.

A few layers of paint with blending and dry brushing and topping it all off with some wax highlights.

Here is the one I made for Pam, She has been there for me since day one. She was my sounding board, my go to. She has been around nursing (I wont say for how long 🙂 and I value her experience.

I loved the Ribbon Frames 2 and built the composition offset from the frame to keep the features of the frame. Just some crackle on the background on this one. I wanted it to look vintage and old. Not in any relation to Pam lol.

A few more close-ups.

Thank you all for stopping by today. I cant thank these wonderful ladies enough for putting up with me,  teaching me how to be a great leader and trusting I will never lead them a stray.
