Steph here. Creating gifts for the upcoming holidays can be both rewarding and fun. Following up on our recent blog hop, I thought I'd jazz up a journal for a friend.
Since the journal was rather plain, I stamped the image on white cardstock and used that for the focal point of the journal.

I coated the butterflies with Mermaid Tears and Brownstone. A light coat of Glastique adds a little shine to the butterflies as well as adheres them to the journal.
Using elements from Decor Set #1, I coated them with a combination of Mermaid Tears, Gilded Rose, and Brownstone. I placed a heavier coat of Glastique on each element to make them strong enough to stand up to constant handling, and also used it as an adhesive.
There you have a quick and easy gift for a friend that looks like you spent hours on it.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Great last-minute gift idea - and I'm in need of those projects right now! Very pretty.
This is beautiful! Your friend will love it.
I love this idea for personalizing a gift!
