Postcard Journal Book

I received my Postale Tags  ( the larger size 6 1/4" by 4 1/8" ) , from Altered Pages ! I have always had a "thing" for tags , I love making them and using them for many things !! I loved the size of these , and the "weight" , I thought to myself, perfect for a small journal !! I think it could be used even as a "special" card for someones birthday !! So I got out my papers & paint !!  I cut a piece of paper as wide as the postcard and about 2" wide , this is how it will be held together !

I used a scalloped edge scissor also , and after I glued it to the postcard I distressed it with a blending tool and ink. Gluing the whole book together this way !
After my book was all assembled I used stencils that I had and  mist paints or use any kind of paints you want for your backgrounds.
I aged some pages again with ink and a blending tool , I like an aged look !!
This is what the page ended up looking like !
I used some die cuts , a clock from Altered Pages Collage sheet , and stamped the text on clear acyclic from a package ( recycle )  ! More pages to follow,
Rubber stamps and vintage papers,
More stamps and a die cut chair and sweet little birdie from an Alterd Pages collage sheet.
The cover of the book( the very first photo )  is from a stencil that I misted on and added embellishments such as a paper doily that I also misted and glued , then stamped the cover with various stamps , added a die cut butterfly that was glittered and some leaves, and an adorable little image from Altered Pages! I use a pen for outlines and doodles& of course some pearls & rhinestones !! A quick little book to make to journal some thoughts for yourself or for a friend !If you have any questions feel free to email me , there is an email link on the right side of my blog !
Have a fabulous and creative day , hope I have inspired you today to create something !
