Shellys-Journal


Shellys-Journal, originally uploaded by cuddle_buddie.

This is the journal I made for the ARTHavenCreations journal swap! Definitely some different colors for me! My partner listed black, hot pink, and lime green as some of her favorite colors, so this is what I came up with :)

The journal is lined with black glittered paper. I think that's why the pic might have turned out not so great. The binding is covered with black velvet ribbon, and hot pink velvet ribbon surrounds the "Journal" stamp that I flocked in hot pink flocking. The little vintage cherub is colored with Copic markers and he sits raised above his journal, writing with a long pink feather pen! Rhinestone chain surrounds this image and millinery flowers accent corners throughout.

julie, where did you find that vintage cherub stamp if you don't mind sharing with me?
i'm looking for one along those lines that i saw in a piece of art in stampington where the cherub was stand with his/her back to us, naked of course, and wings and he was like hanging this ribbon garland. i've looked everywhere for it and can't find anything even like it but i haven't used the word "cherub" in my search. Hmmmm
