Christy's Art/Smash Journal with Steampunked Alice






It is finished and presented to Christy and she liked it. This was so much fun to play with, I got a lot of Copic time on this one.  My focus on this was to keep it simple and not to set the theme.  Christy has a son, daughter and husband, so I wanted her to be able to express all of them in this journal.  I chose the Steam Punk with Alice cause it just seemed to fit.  The Alice on the cover is from "Graphic 45" Halloween Alice, I cut off her witches hat and added a hat from an Inkidoo "SteamPunkedSkull".  One of my favorite things in the entire journal is the pin on the cover, I really wanted one of the plain tag pins but could not find any where here or online, so I made one.  The pin prick protector is a piece of cork from a wine bottle, the "C" was fortuitiously already there.  The ceramic journal piece has been in my stash forever and I cannot remember who is responsible but I like it.  I posted 2 close ups of the pin.  Then I posted three page sets that I liked,  the shilouette was cut from chipboard and then I added a little tuck in pocket and added a tag. The second page set the little card on the right is hard to see but in the left bottom corner it says (recipe) and is from a "Stampin Up" set, the light bulb is from "Spellbinder's" and the 4 is also a "Spellbinder's" font.  The flower is from Cricut "Plantin Schoolbook" cut in 3 sizes and held together with a brad. The last page posted and last page in the journal, 3 coin envelopes colored with copics.  The clock is from a travel cd.  The key is an "Ellison" die as are the 3 tags (you only see 2 the 3rd is tucked between the flap and back to hold it in. The overall size of the journal is 7 1/4" x 5 1/4".
Hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday, you will not see any posts from me til I return from the "Biggest Little City" in America, I am off to Las Vegas on Friday and will back late Monday evening so stay safe and happy and play nice.  Hugs

Sandy, this is fabulous! You have such a talent for bringing papers to life. I am so intimidated by these types of projects and here you are making it look like a piece of cake. The colors and details are gorgeous! I might have to put my fears behind me and give it a go.
