Journal Page for Gloria

As most of you know by now I'm involved with a Journal Round Robin Swap on Kindred Souls.
The book I've been working on this week is for none other than Gloria Alexander.
The theme she chose was Vintage Shabby Chic. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it.

 Here is a close up of the tag I covered using a napkin collage technique. You basically decoupage the napkin to the piece and then I used iridescent watercolor to hand paint in all the details.
 I just love doing this for it transforms your piece to look like actual canvas.
The cut out pieces are by K and Company.

This is a close up of the small embellishment I made from a small envelope and tag cut from some patterned paper.
This is the back of the page. I love the vintage feel of this print and thought it went perfectly with the theme.
