Gingerbread Tilda...

Hi Everyone!  This is the last handmade Christmas gift that I will be showing to you.  It is another altered journal.  I made this one as 'Secret Santa' to one of my Magnolia-licious DT sisters.  These journals are so much fun to alter and can be used for any occassion.  This is going to be a quick post as I have a ton of accounting to tend to today.  Hooray for me - NOT!

Gingerbread Tilda Altered Journal
I 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!
