Composition Journal

Hello! Today I am showing a composition book that I have covered in papers with pockets and die cut flowers.

This is the for the March Canvas Corp Brands Challenge #ccbchallenge, looking forward to playing, it is my first challenge with them!

It was also added to the Bleeding Art Challenge for March, my first time there also!

The guidelines for the challenge were -
I also added this to the Bleeding Art Challenge of Anything Goes!

I started out with a blank composition book and decided I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and played it safe with black and white papers, so I chose 5 different patterns in black and white to cover the covers of the book. I then created a pocket on the inside front cover to tuck in tags and other ephemera for the recipient. 

Cutting several flowers and green pieces from gelli printed papers I have painted earlier, I started to layer them and attach them to the cover. 

I then added washi tape down the front of the cover and along the spine for more interest. I then decided because it was a journal it needed a bookplate on the front so I cut the plate with a die cut from the painted gelli papers also. 

Then added lace and more washi tape. Here is the finished composition book journal!
