Write it All Down- New Year, New Journal

Happy NEW YEAR!!!!!

2016 is under way and so is My Besties International January Challenge,

To start the new year I have created a journal for all my ideas and notes.
I have used Sherri Baldy My Besties digi Brittany 2

For this challenge the theme was Lots of Color.  I tried to get every color onto this.

I then began decorating.

I started with texture paste and a stencil directly onto the front.

You can add anything you want.

For more added texture I used gesso and applied paper towel and
a bit of lace.  Let this all dry before adding more layers or color.

You can make as big or as little, thick or thin as you want.
How did I make this:

chipboard, old cereal box cut to size  2- 4" x  6" and 1- 1/2" x 6"
Outside covering  1- 8" x 9 1/2" 
Inside coverings  2- 3 7/8" x 5 7/8", 1-2 1/2" x 5 7/8"
Notecard pieces (as many as needed to fill your pad base) 3 3/4" x 5 1/2"
Covering for notes 5 1/2" x 7 7/8"
A piece of deco mesh

I hope you have enjoyed todays project.
