Happy Monday everyone!
Today I'm sharing the beginnings of my gratitude journal for November. I decided to begin early to build in a few spreads before I move onto the actual journal and start the daily entries.
First up is the cover. I used this beautiful gold, white, and brown patterned paper from the Today I am Thankful printable bundle. The paper was cut in half, which fits the cover of the travelers notebook perfectly. Before I adhered it to the cover of the notebook, I machine stitched along the tops of each of the brown lines to give it a little dimension. I followed that with the Freckled Fawn washi tape and Illustrated Faith chipboard leaves.
The first spread in my notebook uses the yellow/triangle patterned paper, which I printed on transparency film. I cut it down to size and layered the dark blue patterned papers on top. Next came the picture, which was printed with my Instax printer and adhered with Mono glue. I used the tag - an exclusive Scrapbook Circle cut file included with the bundle - and stamped a sentiment using distress oxide ink. Last was the leaf and date stamp.
The right side of the spread contains my journaling. I used Moms Typewriter font with my word processing program and printed it on white paper. Next, I adhered it to the top of my patterned papers and added another leaf from Illustrated Faith as well a fussy leaf from the printable bundle. At the top I stapled the blessed tag using my Tiny Attacher. Last, I splattered black ink across both pages to fill in some of the white and tie it all together.
The finished spread turned is great and I love the beautiful fall colors!
