Fresh Start

What better way to start fresh then by journaling your year. This year I made journals for some of my friends. The piece I attached to the front was done with the Butterfly stencil (LJ 916) and the Maidenhair Fern (LJ 846 ). I stencil parts of the butterfly on two corners by rouging in Bundled Sage and then I positioned the Maidenhair fern on the paper and pasted with Matte Black Paste.When the paste was dry I repositioned the stencil over the image and applied Palette Stamp and Stick Glue with a jumbo dauber. I then applied Metallic F/X in Kiwi, Ivy Garden and Goldfinch, you can do this with either a small  stencil brush of a round paint brush.  Remove the stencil and swiffer off the excess mica. Voila a fun quick gift for one of your friends.
Now it's your turn, create something with a fresh start theme and link to the Dream It Up blog using Mr. Linky or e-mail a picture to Lynell at and you could be a winner in this month's challenge. While your at it check in with the rest of the Dream Team and see what they have come up with this week. 
Well off to CHA and Disneyland on friday. I am really excited to see some of my dream team sisters and find out what's new in the world of crafting. See you next week.
