The theme over at Cut It Up this time is Summer School! Now, usually that is not such a good thing; but in this case, it was really fun! The idea is to follow a tutorial and tell who you followed. I followed several YouTube Tutorials from Jen of Eve Designs to make my chunky junk journal. However, I did not use her templates/patterns.
I have several pictures, but it's probably easier to understand watching the video above. There I could show you all the pull-outs, slide-ins, flips, etc. I will say up front, I had to video outside; therefore the color is not true so I inserted photos.
Almost all the paper is from Polkadoodles Winnie in Wonderland Collection. The collection includes digital paper, ephemera, sentiments, digis (black & white and pre-colored), tags, etc.
Everything in my book is from Digital downloads and are pre-colored. No Copics were harmed in this project! ; )
I did add black cardstock, white cardstock, lined paper from stash and one strip of striped paper from Polkadoodles Octavia Collection.
Embellishments include: Offray lace, buttons, CTMH charms/gems/numbers, ribbon, waxed twine, homemade flowers, Prima flowers, SVG cuts from Cutting Cafe, chain from broken necklace. There are also cuts from Artbooking & Art Philosophy.
The book covers and spine are made from Grafix Medium Weight Chipboard. I inked all the pages, tags and cover with black pigment ink. Now, if you are wondering if I was covered in ink by the time the project was done...well, the answer is a resounding, "YES!"
I did some embossing with an M-Bossability embossing folder. I used Liquid Glass and Studio G Glitter Glue for some sparkle and shine.
Thanks for hanging with me through this long post! Please view the video for more information and a better look at all the "bells and whistles." You will see parts of the book I couldn't get with my still camera.
