Hello and for you today I have a journal cover using Stitchy Bear Stamps Goth Prom Queenthis is a first for me, as I have never attempted a journal cover before, this started as an A5 card and I thought it could be so much more... so I managed to procure some hard board and made a set of journal covers instead - unfortunately, the rings did not arrive by the time I went away , so shock horror, it is an incomplete project :(
please imagine it with lots of gorgeous black, purple and red lace hanging off the binding rings , to coordinate with the colours used on the cover.
I have however added a strip of lace behind the image, and handmade a shabby lace flower embellishment by layering three scrunched circles of lace, sewing them together, and adding a red half pearl in the centre to hide the stitching.
The image has been coloured using promarkers and the eyes have a layer of glossy accents on them ,as do the jewels in her tiara. I flicked red ink around the image to mimic blood splatter too.
The papers used are a damask style sheet from my papermania bexley black collection, a purple spotted Gorjuss paper from the mega die cut pack, and a strip of foiled lipstick print cardstock that I was given as a gift by a friend a while ago. the floral swirl was also a present in with my Samaflora flower order ,that I coloured using a black promarker, and then added stickles accents to.
the die cut corners on the image are cut using a small green sizzix die out of the same black card I have used for matting, and the sparkly black card behind was plain back cardstock that I embossed with a black glitter embossing powder .
I finished it with 4 copper tone metal corners and attached the whole lot onto the prepared journal cover (the inside is covered with oyster blush 12x12 papers ) and I didnt show you the back cover as on the outside It is plain black.
once the rings have come, and I am over my trip back from the orkney Islands I will blog an updated picture!
I hope you all have fun with this month's challenge, and I can't wait to see your creations!
Would love to enter this journal cover at :
