Rich Metal Hues Journal for Eileen Hull Designs by Sizzix

 I love to work with metallics and this journal is definitely a study in rich gold hues.

I've filmed a tutorial video that takes you through the creation of this cover step by step.  I also show you how to string this kind of journal and how to make a fun spine button closure.

Metal flower heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel along with gold toned design papers from Stamperia and Graphic 45 contribute  gorgeous vintage golds to the cover.

Love these gold embossed flowers.

 This is a spine button that I use to make the journal's closure.
