The journal is a notebook I picked up from Michael's craft store. It actually had a quite pretty drawing of several flowers on the front but I was in the mood for frogs so the flowers had to go! First step in decorating the book was stamping and coloring with Copic markers four little froggies. Next I punched them out with a 1 3/8" circle punch. For the final touch I coated the frogs with a bit of Crystal Effects.
I then picked out some pretty designer paper and a few matching accents. I didn't have a perfect match for the journal title so I took some naked chipboard letters and sprayed with Patina Glimmer Mist. The result was the right color AND they sparkle (bonus!). At this point all that was left was assembly... a bit of super sticky tape and a bunch of dimensionals and I was done!
Relatively easy project and now all I need to do is find it a new home. :)
