Shabby Chic Journal Cover- Video Tutorial

Hi lovely friends! Today's project features Studio 75- Secrets Garden collection  and the Notebook- Mrs. Black that I made the covers. I framed the girl image and cut out some flowers, tags from the papers. You can see all the process in the video tutorial at the end of this post. Let's take a look...




I started cutting and draping the Secret Garden 03 paper. Then I added a piece of Miss Olivia 03 that I gave textures with the stencil flower and light paste.

My back cover is simple only I covered with the same paper.

I love all the textures and the romantic look, the pretty lace is from Tresor de Luxe.
