Oriental Journal

    Well I didn't get as  much done in the craft room yesterday as I would have liked but I did get a batch of graduation cards done and this journal.
  I did this journal for a friend of mine who found out last week that her hubbys next assignment with the military will be to Japan. So they will be moving soon - first part of July I think. Its their first time overseas so I thought she might like a journal for their new adventure - and her Birthday is this week too :)
  I covered the journal in oriental washi paper from my long hoarded stash :) and added some ribbons to match how I colored the image.
   The image is - of course - from Sweet Pea Stamps. She is called 'Pink Peony' and is by Ching Chou Kuik.
   She is available as a rubber stamp and digital image. I colored her with prismacolor pencils and then cut her out with a Spellbinders die and edged with a gold metallic pen.
  I also added some pearl drops with a viva décor pen.
  All for today - errands to run and then back to the craft room fast as I can :)
    Take Care

Gorgeous oriental journal, Tera. I really like the paper you used for the BT and the border ribbon and lace you added to show her off!
