A Gardener's Journal

This journal has been a work in progress for about a month.  Not that it took me a month to assemble; but because of being busy with the usual daily activities of my wonderful life.  I knew in my mind that I wanted to create a garden journal, but it was just carving out time where I can give it a lot of love.  I have to say that I am very pleased with how this journal turned out.  Initially, I thought it was too bright.  But aren't beautiful gardens loaded with vivid colors?  I do not have a green thumb.  But I do admire beautiful gardens.  This journal was just posted on my website, in hopes that someone will purchase it for themselves or as a gift.  Mother's Day is right around the corner and I thought this would make a lovely gift.  If I have not mentioned it before I am a huge fan of Prima Marketing Inc.  They are my go to when I need the prettiest of embellishments.  They also came out with these amazing resist canvas journal covers a few years ago.  I used these covers for this journal.  I have several of these covers left that are awaiting for me to doll up.  The outside and inside of these covers were inked with Dylusions sprays.  I used a Dylusion stencil on the inside of the covers.  The front cover was embellished with a vintage seed packet, Basic Grey chipboard letters, Basic Grey chipboard garden poke, KaiserCraft wood fence, Prima metal antique garden sink, and paper flowers from Michael's.  Each page in the lower right hand corner was alternately stamped with the word, grow, and a watering can.  Both stamps are from Unity Stamp Company.  Check out the pics and let me know what you think...I always look forward to your comments.  They really make my day!
