How is your week going? It is nearly the weekend. We have a trip to the theatre tonight and a trip to London tomorrow to celebrate our daughter's birthday. So we are going to be busy. I do hope the weather is kind.
You might have noticed the new sparkly Design Team badge at the side of my blog. Yesterday it was announced that I am now a member of the Delightful Digi's Design Team and today I am sharing my first make using one of their images and a backing paper. There is a blog where you can buy the images that you see just click on the picture below.
Everyday I write a diary, I have been doing it for years and years. I decided to buy a journal with a blank cover to decorate myself as decorated journal are expensive to buy. Well it has been sat on my craft desk for ages waiting. Today was the day that it got decorated.
It is an A5 journal with a craft card cover. I used the Delightful Digi's Green Quilt from the O- Sew-Sweet Collection for the background. The green of the quilt matched the green of the matting layers I had used. The way the journal opens meant that I couldn't cover the strip at the side, rather than leaving it plain I decided to put a length of lace there.
For the main image I used the super cute Field Mouse also from the O-Sew-Sweet Collection. He was coloured with Promarkers I must say he was lovely to colour quite therapeutic . I added buttons again as they went with the sewing/stitching theme. I might really be cured now. Though phobias are never rational it might be because the buttons I am using are new that I can cope.
I cut the sentiment with a Spellbinders die.
This was cut with another Spellbinder die.
I am rather pleased with the end result and I will enjoy filling it in. I will certainly be on the lookout for more blank journals to cover.
I forgot to mention that there is also a Delightful Digi's Facebook Group that you can join to see what the design team have made and share makes of your own. Don't forget to visit the blog there are some beautiful images there.
I hope you all have a brilliant weekend. I am hoping to do some crafting on Sunday. I do need to finish the wedding invitations.
