Dreams Do Come True

Hi all!  Today I’m going to show you something a little different – I’ve been playing around with an old book and am calling it my Fun Journal.  It’s not an Art Journal because not everything I do in it is art, but I definitely have fun with it all, hence the name!

Today’s spread was made for the Little Tangles challenge – White and Gold.  I got all the gold things together in my craft room and went to town!


I painted the whole spread with white gesso, then sprayed it with gold Memories Mist.  I added some modeling paste with a harlequin stencil and then cut some wings with my Sizzix wings die.  The wings were painted with gold paint and glued into the book.  Then I embossed the Dreams sentiment in gold tinsel embossing powder and folded it to make a pop-up element in the middle of the book over the wings.  Finally I added the vellum tag with Believer from Santa's Tags and some white twill ribbon with gold baker’s twine.  The very last step was to stamp the little snowflake from the Santa’s Tags set all over with Champagne Encore metallic ink.

I had so much fun making this!!  Hopefully I’ll be showing more fun journal pages in the future!  I hope you like it and TFL!
