Fairy Dust Journal for Creative Embellishments

I'm sharing an enchanted journal that I made for Creative Embellishments (CE) today.  I wish you could see how the cover twinkles with all the "fairy dust" on it!  Therm-o-web Iridescent Glitter Dust is a great product for adding lots of sparkle to you projects and the best part is that glitter doesn't get all over everything when you use it.  A word of caution though, you need to use it in a well ventilated area and cover surrounding surfaces to protect from over spray.

This sweet little CE chipboard fairy sitting on the moon takes center stage.  She is painted first with white paint and then with Bo Bunny Glitter Paste.  I also used Glitter Paste to mask on some  twinkling fairy sparkles in the background with CE's Fairy Dust Stencil.

I made a closure button with one of the flair buttons from the Fairy Set.  I glued the flair piece to a button, punched two small holes in the cover, and threaded the button onto the cover with lightweight cording.  There's a gold elastic band coming out of the spine, from inside the journal, that wraps around the back of the journal and loops over the button.

I dabbed Flourish 27 with Lindy's Mist and then cut it up to use as foliage underneath these pretty Little Birdie blooms.

Little Birdie had a wonderful booth at Creativation and a fun Make 'n' Take too.  Best of all they gave away the cutest little gift bags with these flowers inside!

 There's another flair button tucked into this floral cluster.
