Mini Journal

 Hello Everybody!

I made this little journal for the Moving Parts Challenge at TFJB Challenge Blog.  When I saw moving parts of thought the page has to move to see the next page. I made it mini because I have lots of little paper dolls and snippets from Tim Holtz and this is a great way to use them. :) 

The base of the pages are from Silhouette in the Design Studio (Silhouette brand 295181).  It originally had a match book style to it but because I embellish a little extra I just had to make it without a wrap around paper piece.

Here's the front:

This journal measures length almost 2.75 inches and 3 inches wide. I used brads to bind it together. The front is a Tim Holtz snippet, clay frame with mica powder and finnabair gold vintage wax and the back ground paper is a from Tim also.

When I put the clay in the mold-I dusted it with the mica powder first so it looks coppery. Then on the right side you can see the difference the wax makes.

The first 2 pages. Snippets, heart punch, gears from sizzix gearhead and Tim's metallic paper, Tim Rub-on and both have paper dolls.  

I made this background with a script stamp from Tim and distress oxides and inks and water.

Here is a close up of this page.

Here is the next two pages:

Both of these used Tim's abandoned papers for backgrounds. 

Tim's paper dolls, rub-ons and a piece of lace and flower found in my stash.

This is a cool Tim stamp but I felt it got lost in the background. The picture makes it look better than it really is LOL. So I added some things:

A Tim Holtz bird and a sizzix Tim green -So the stamp is part of the cool background now.

Here's the next to pages-Moving right along....(see what I did there?)

Both of these background pages are from Abandoned. 

This butterfly is a transparency that I added glitter glue and then white paint. There are some sparkles there I promise :) And an old dream ticket because I still have those :) And Snippets. Oh and a clipping sticker.

Snippet, washi tape, a sticker from 7 gypsies and the heart I think came from The Funky and Frilly Boutique in one of those cute envelopes. (and if not then it was in my stash LOL)

Here is the next set:

This was a tan paper that I used rustic wilderness distress oxide on. I cut out the sizzix mixed media piece and colored the smaller kid's outfit with prism markers. More clippings stickers.

I used kitsch flamingo embossing powder on this cool lady. A clippings sticker. The background is pattern paper I had floating around and I don't know the brand. If it's not Tim's I would say 7 gypsies.

This is the last set.

This background paper was also sort of beige and I used speckled egg oxide. More snippets and a paper doll and a gear to help tie in from the 2nd page.

And this is the inside of the back cover. I used gathered twigs distress ink and a little black soot over the raised edges. The embossing folder is an old Tim one from Halloween (I think).  I loved this clippings sticker as a sort of the end. :)

So above is the debossed side. And below is the embossed side. I used walnut stain, villianous potion and prized ribbon and water. I think the stain was ink the other two were oxides. Also, I bent the brads because they were long which was good to go through the book but then they hung over. Thankfully, the "arms" were easy enough to bend.  And I used vintage gold wax from finnabair over the raised edges.

Thank you so much for stopping by and then moving again ;) (lol I laugh at my jokes even if no one else does) lolol :)
