Art Journal Birthday Gift

Hello Bloggers,
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far.  As I write this post, I'm looking out the front window and watching the snow fall and quickly accumulate.  That's right, October 29th and we're getting a major snowstorm here in the Northeast.  Though not uncommon to get snow in October, the amounts they're predicting is rare, 6-10 inches where we are.  I'll be sure to post some pics later on, but for now, I'd like to share an art journal, well, maybe drawing book would be a more appropriate description, and a birthday card.  This is for a little girl who just turned 6 who loves to color and draw.  I've included a 50 pack of Crayola Markers and an assortment of stickers to go along with it too.  The pages are blank, so she can draw, write and stick the stickers anyway she'd like.

I purchased a 9x12inch sketch book, took the wire binding off and cut it in half to make two 6x9 books.  I'm just about finished with the second book and will hopefully post tomorrow.  I then just used my Bind-it-All and re-bound the book.

Have a great rest of the weekend and check back later for some snow pics.

I used DCWV Songbird paper stack and "fussy-cut" a lot of the images from the paper.  In fact, the only elements not from the paper are the buttons, flowers, and the bling.

The digital stamp used on the card is Big Pressie Tia form Some Odd Girl.  I colored the image with my copics and paper pieced the present.  I used DCWV Nana's Nursery paper stack and I pulled out the Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder and did a bit of embossing.  Some prima bling was added to finish it off.

  1. The book is just too cute. I'm sure Jaz loves it. Loved the card too. Your coloring is fantastic. I strive to be half as good.
