Now that we've wrapped up our previous challenge, let's get started on our new challenge!  

Reneé has begun a journal for a new baby boy.


Hello Ai fans!

There's a new challenge on the Art Impressions blog called Dynamic Duo.
They want to see at least 2 stamp or die sets on your creation.

I used 9!  WHAT??  Yes,  9 different sets plus the new Bleed Proof White paint which is incredible!!
You don't need to be a watercolor artist to love that stuff!

I've been working on a baby journal.

Today I'll share my cover and the first two pages.

All products will be linked at the bottom of my post.

The little sheep is popped up on foam dots so the the clasp will close underneath him.

The decorative clasp dies are so pretty!  They're so ornate and just perfect for whatever journal you decide to make.

The back of my journal is the only page that I won't be "decorating" but with the back of the clasp it still looks pretty.

My first page has a pocket for a stat sheet about the birth of this baby boy.
I used a stencil to draw lines for my handwritten text which I erased afterwards.

Here's the insert out of it's pocket after I erased the lines.

This is the entire journal from the outside.

Here it is opened on the inside without any pages added yet.

This is my first added page so with the page on the inside of the front cover,  this is technically page 2.

I used the Bleed Proof White paint to add little dots on the fabric.

I haven't glued my page in yet because I need to decorate the back before I do that.
Stay tuned this Sunday to see the next two pages.

Copics used:

Inside cover-Page 1:
C2, N4, E00, E23, E30, D34, E37, Tombow 526

Page 2:
R83, Y23, B1, B93, E00, E23, E37

Thank you Reneé.  We can't wait to see the next pages!
