Journal for Lisa

Time for another journal.    This is one I made for my friend, Lisa.   She's a dancer and is hilarious.  Very expressive and fun.  Just a joy to be around.

The journal is a bit subdued, I suppose, but I love the quote I found to put on it.  No idea who to credit it to.  It seems a bit blurred in the picture.  It says "Beauty without expression is boring."

I really like the way this one turned out.  Simple, but elegant.
Pin It

The curio knob looks like its off center, but it isn't.   I'm anal...remember.   It just looks that way in the photo.

I painted the wood hanging plaque in Brushed Corduroy Distress Crack Paint, but did NOT like how it turned out, so after it dried, I just added some gold Alcohol Ink Mixative.  Perfect!!!

Here is a list of the products I used:
Paper:  Classic Chic paper from Basic Grey Little Black Dress Collection
Scroll Gaffer Tape: 7 Gypsies
Wooden Hanging: KaiserCraft Flourish Pack - Hanging Plaques
402 Sticker:  Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Crowded Attic Salvage Stickers
Knob:  Tim Holtz Idea-ology - Curio Knobs

See you soon!
