Hi, everyone!

Just got the newsletter from Cloth Paper Scissors Embellishments. This was supposed to run in September, but Cate sent an email today and said they decided to run it this week. Surprise!!! Thanks, Cate!

Made my day!

"Linda takes pre-bound or handmade journals and uses layers of background stamps and Distress™ inks to create depth.
She hand paints chipboard shapes and applies pictures of children, brass elements (Linda uses Vintaj® jewelry findings, but you could also use found objects), or both.
Then she glues the embellished pieces onto the covers. Finally, Linda trims out the books with cording, ribbons, brads, beads, jewels, charms, and her signature pen marks.
If you're inspired by Trudi and Linda's ideas for decorative journals, make some of your own with inexpensive composition books, and products from our online store like Distress inks, Grungeboard shapes, and our Back-to-School Bargains (see below)."

Decorated journals by Linda Cain

That's all for today...working on kits for class...times flies!
