Journal cover – Lisa Gregory

I am over the moon excited to be sharing my very first Dusty Attic project with you! I am what you call a Dusty Attic Fanatic. I had  a wonderful collection of gorgeous Dusty Attic product before my Design Team package arrived, so I was able to complete the cover for this mini album on time for my post today.
Before I added my elements to my cover, I used a mask and some texture paste to give the cover a textural feel.  I added the Mini Corner #2 to the corners of the album..

The flowers I used are Dusty in Bloom Wild Moss. To finish the frame and the corner pieces, (I only  used 1 piece of the frame and will save the base for another project) I painted the pieces  by combining 2 different Dusty In Color paints.  Dusty in Colour Oceania and Dusty in Colour Jungle Green. I used more blue than green. Once I mixed the 2 together, I painted the frame. When the paint dried, I used some Dusty in Colour Clear Crackle Varnish. Once the frame was dry and crackled, I used the Vintage Photo distress ink on the edges. I placed the photo behind the framed window.

To adorn the spine, I cut off  2 pieces of the French Flourish Border and butted them together. I heat embossed the pieces with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing powder in Desert Moon Turquoise.
  Then I used some Ranger distress ink in Vintage Photo on the edges and adhered the pieces to the spine.

Once again, I mixed together Dusty in Colour Oceania Dusty in Colour Jungle Green and painted the spine that I cut from Grunge Bord. I love using it because it is flexible. Perfect for  mini album spine. I love the color and wanted some shimmer, so I sprayed it with Lindys Royal Peacock Fire Glitz Spray. It leaves a gorgeous bluish shimmer without changing the color of the paint.

The  mini keyhole pieces were heat embossed the same as above. I colored some seam binding and strung it through the holes I punched out with my Cropadile. I placed one piece on the front, and the other on the back covers.
