OK so I know there aren't 31 days in November but Bernice is doing a roundup and the cover of her journal today on "An Attitude of Gratitude" so I just had to do my cover too, despite still having 7 pages and the inside covers to complete.
Bernice used up her table papers to make her covers. I haven't been using table papers but had various sheets of sprayed backing papers and chose my favourite from when I first got my Dylusions. Must have been spraying a tag!
My paper wasn't wide enough to fit the whole cover, so I left the mulberry spine free and just covered the other bits. I used old dictionary papers for the words "Attitude" and "Gratitude" and various flowers and leaves which I had previously diecut and were in stock. I used sepia glossy accents over them, and added some ribbon too.
I also added some metal pieces, corners, arrows pointing to the words and a "Journey" token. And what a journey this has been (although I still have a bit of a way to go yet!)
I can't really take a photo of all my pages together like Bernice has, but here's a side view of the album nearly completed.
I am so pleased with it so a HUGE THANK YOU goes to Bernice - HORRAH!
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.

Its lovely - have you checked T!ms blog yet this morning?
Lovely cover BJ. This journal is a real work of art and you must be very pleased with your achievement.
I adore your wrap-up. And you managed to get it in a few sentences, too. Unlike my long rambling post that I created (grin).
I love the looks of this book. So awesome to see these pages come together like that. And the corners on the cover are a brilliant idea!
Great sprayed effect and I love how it looks put together. :)
Thank you for joining in with this project. I have been really encouraged by seeing your pages every day. Thanks for posting my linky the last 2 weeks.
Fabulous journal, BJ. Lovely pages and the corners are the perfect finishing touch. Now you have something to treasure always. Elizabeth xx
Great job, BJ! I love your covers! It has been a pleasure doing this challenge with you!
