Gingerbread Tilda Altered JournalI bought a plain green journal at a local store - green because it would work well with Christmas papers. I chose my favorite dp's from October Afternoon. Aren't they just so warm and homey? I just love the winter trees and houses. It looks like a wonderful small town. I saved the scraps so I can do something else with them over the winter. I thought Magnolia's #3067 Gingerbread Tilda would be perfect for this project. I cut the image image and background with Spellbinder's Nestabilities. The mitten bookmark was also done with a new set of Christmas Nestabilities that I absolutely LOVE! I tied them with some of the brown/white baker's twine that I bought in Sweden.
I wanted to include a sentiment, but I didn't want to cover the image or dp's. I decided to make a tag and tuck it behind the image. You can see in the first photo how it provided a bit more of a backdrop to the image.
In this photo, you can see the entire tag with the sentiment (I don't remember who it's by).
I colored the image with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's, but in the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I didn't mark what I used - Sorry!
Thank you so much for visiting. I love to read the comments you leave and I greatly appreciate the time it takes. Check back soon for a new Magnolia-licious DT project!
