LaBlanche Sunflower Journal

Hello! I wanted to show you a journal that I made up for a friend's daughter, featuring LaBlanche's beautiful "Sunflower" stamp found at the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store!

Here's a closeup of the cheerful image...
colored with Copic Sketch Markers.

This simple journal is made of a composition notebook, found just about anywhere.  The cream and brown background papers are K and Company's "Wild Saffron" 12 X 12" designer paper, and the beautiful text panel is 7 Gypsies "Conservatory."

One request for the journal was that it would be somewhat flat. So, touches of  May Art's Ivory Lace and Natural Burlap String, as well as a Pink Paislee "Butterfly Collection Bauble" make it so.

A bit of distressing with Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress Ink and natural stick pencil provide that special "garden" feel to this hopefully much used journal.

Most of the supplies used today are from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.

Hope that this inspires you to make up a journal...so very easy, and fun!

Have a wonderful remainder to your week!
