Write Your Story Journal
April 17, 2018
Hello, friends! It's Nancy Nickel here with a new project share!
This week I have created a fun journal
using two pages from the Chipboard 6 X 6 Regular Album.
This album comes with five pages,
so I have three pages left over for another project.
Here's the journal:
I began by dusting the naked chipboard
with my embossing powder tool.
I was going to be doing some heat embossing,
and didn't want the embossing powder sticking
where it wasn't supposed to.
Next I positioned the 6" Write Your Story Stencil
in place on the front cover.
Then I took a nice juicy Versamark ink pad,
and inked through the stencil.
I made sure that the entire image had been well inked
before removing the stencil.
Then I heat embossed the image using white embossing powder.
Next I colored the background,
using a combination of three Distress Oxide Inks.
I misted it with water, allowing a few water drops to fall.
Then I used a baby wipe to wipe the color off of the embossing.
I repeated the inking process for the back cover.
This is a journal, created to write in,
so the pages had to serve that purpose.
I pulled out my 12" Prima Ledger Paper Pads and chose a few pages.
I cut them down to 6" square, rounded the corners,
punched holes in them, and inserted them between my covers.
Here's one last look at my finished album:
