Well you can't fail to notice that I've been bitten by the Smash* journal bug, I'm so addicted already, anyway as you know I've been doing up the pages in my Blue Retro book but I'd not really finished the cover as I wanted. To be honest I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but then I was colouring away the other day (see my last post!) and thought ' Why not put a favourite character on the front, coloured to suit the colour of the book so that's what I did, I finished it off last night when I added the ric-rac ribbon, put my character on and added some stickers of words that relate to my journal to go with the stamped sentiments.
As you can see I'd already put my name in chipboard silver letters and had stuck the buttons on.
I coloured 'Boobie' (I love colouring her in) who is one of Krista's amazing characters from Saturated Canary and then I added the gorgeous blue Prima rose, she already had a rose in her hair so I thought it worked a treat! Who knows I may highlight some of the embossing but right now I'm happy as it is.
Anyway I'm going to enter this into the 'Anything Goes' challenge 19 over at Saturated Canary Challenge blog - it just shows how versatile these images are, as they lend themselves to so many uses. Different characters are already popping up on the pages of my book.
Thanks for looking, take care Zo xx
