Traveling Tilda Journal...

Happy Day After Christmas Everyone!!! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas Day! We had a wonderful holiday!!! Our Christmas Eve party was a blast. There were 25 of us, family and friends. We ate...we laughed...we celebrated. It was wonderful and I'm glad it's over! Yesterday at my brother's house was very relaxing. I got to sit back and not worry about entertaining anyone. Today...we clean :-(

For now, I'd like to show you another gift that I made for the awesome 'Diana Crick'. I am so thrilled that she likes it! This is a set that includes a journal that I altered. I hope you enjoy it.

Traveling Tilda Journal

This zebra print journal is actually covered with brown zebra stripes! Brown being my favorite color, I fell in love with it. I bought a set for myself as well - hehe. Anyway, I envisioned Diana taking it with her on her travels and keeping notes. Because of that, I chose to alter the journal cover with Traveling Tilda and I put her up on the Magnolia suitcases. Traveling Tilda is from the Bon Voyage collection, which is one of my favorites. I had purchased the entire collection and I still have several stamps from that collection that have gone un-inked so you'll be seeing them for sure in the coming year. The lace is from my stash and I think the sentiment is from LOTV.

I colored these images with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's. Notice that Tilda's dress and shoes are Diana's favorite color :-) Here are the details:

Copics - E000, 00, 02, 41, 42, 43, 44, R20, RV21, N1, 3

DI's - vintage photo, walnut stain, black soot, weathered wood, tumbled glass, worn lipstick, spun sugar, antique linen

Here's the whole set in the box. The set consists of the journal, pencils, tissue, and a luggage tag.

Here is the candy box that I altered very simply by adding some dp's by Little Yellow Bicycle and ribbon from my stash. Cs is Stampin' Up! I cut the snowflakes with one of my dies, but for the life of me I don't remember which one! I covered the snowflakes with stardust Stickles for a little bling.

That's all I have for today! I hope your day is a magical one :-)
