I wanted to try something with gesso and glimmer mist to make a really shabby chic look. I decided to take a simple 6x4 inch journal and see what I could do with it.
I decided to Gesso all the edges of the Journal and all metal and other embellishments first. What a mess right!! Then I went over the edges of the journal again with white Acrylic Paint.
I then chose some paper from Prima - Rondelle Collection for the front and back of the journal and put gesso on the edges of the paper too. See I told you I wanted to use Gesso!! I then stitched around the edges of the paper with my sewing machine.
Prima Chevron stencil and put some modelling paste on it. And backed it with some dark pink card.
I added lace, a string of pearls, flowers etc. and a Prima Shabby Chic Window - then guess what I did......
After all that Gesso, I sprayed here and there with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Key Lime Pie and Vintage Pink. I also added a white Muslin ribbon, twine and a key, some Cheesecloth and little gems here and there. Even the little padlock has some cheesecloth, gems and a little rose. And I put a touch of glitter on the flowers, its hard to see in the photos, but there is glitter. Oh I nearly forgot the Sweet Prima light bulb -Junkyard Findings. I hope you like the finished product, thanks for stopping by to have a look. Until next time, TTFN. xx

Life is a journey with all its ups and downs for us all. This card I made this week was for a special friend who has helped me lots recently. She seems to know what to say and when to say it, I just hope I can be half as good as her when someone needs me......or else I can point them in the right direction!!

We are very sad that our lovely friends are leaving to set up home way away across the water..........how could they do this to us!! Well we had some tricks up our sleeves - didn't we girls. We thought if we threw them this fabulous party they would just see how much we all love them and they just wouldn't have the heart to leave us all behind. Did it work..................
