This is my first attempt with the chipboard journal and the chipboard pieces. It's better than the scan makes it out to be -- I probably should've taken a picture, but am too lazy to get the camera out!
The covers are covered with Recollections paper. I covered the chipboard circle under the flower with another of the Recollections papers, sponged the edges in Cranberry Crisp, then added layers of Cranberry Crisp and Always Artichoke. The AA circle is stamped with Aida in AA, French Script in Cranberry Crisp and the spatter pattern from Itty Bitty Backgrounds in white craft.
The edges of the journal are heavily antiqued with Always Artichoke and Close to Cocoa.
I took two watercolored images of the small rose, cut them out and adhered the top rose with a dimensional, turning it slightly to the bottom rose. I curled the edges and brushed on some PearlEx for dimension. The center of the rose has a few brown and golden beads in the center.
