Flowery, Fast, Fabulous Journal for a Frilly Teenager

Here's a flowery, fabulous, FAST, fun project.  My teenage daughter, Marli, asked for a journal she could paste all her fashion/girlie magazine clippings into - sort of a wish book, journal/doodle book. I handed her an extra composition notebook I had in the scrap room and tossed it her way.  "Aren't you going to decorate it for me?"  D'oh! What was I thinking?  OF COURSE I AM!
With this Memory Mosaics paper from Donna Salazar Designs, I really didn't have to do much to get it looking amazing pretty quick.  This is the Flowers/Nature paper.  It's really stunning, with the flowers all popping out in bright colors.  Because Marli's middle name is ROSE....I made those images really stand out by gluing an acrylic fragment over the rose panels in the paper. Using Glossy Accents instead of the acrylic would work too, but I didn't want to wait for anything to dry.  I glued down her glittery initials and voila! Oh, and I glued down ribbon before adhering the paper to the book so she could tie it all closed to hold in her treasures.

Pretty groovy, huh? And she likes it too :)

Now you really are a star, that journal is gorgeous! I would have been completely intimidated by those flowers and you have really made them work with the acrylics bits on certain ones!
