Top Hat Journal “Chronicles”18 August 2012 | By Veronica in Uncategorized
Hello, Veronica here with you today, and I have a journal to share. I used some of the CHA Summer 2012 new release Basically Bare items! The Hats and Staches embellies are so dang cute! On this journal I was trying for a steam punk look so I used my Top Hat. I also used some of the gears from the gear embellie pack.
This journal cover popped in my head the minute I saw the Top Hat and I had so much fun making this book. As you can see by the cover I added alot of embellies and ink to give me that steampunk feel. I also used cheesecloth, canvas and stamped elements along with the flowers and trinkets.
I love this Top Hat and I wanted to use it for my journal cover because I think it adds to the steampunk look I was going for. I embossed my top hat with a mixture of embossing powder and I added a couple of layers to get that real bubbly look.
On the inside pages of my journal I wanted to add some dividers for my book. I used the Gears Set II for my tabs. All I did was cut my gears in half and just adhere them to the pages. The gears already came in black chipboard so I used them as is. Love how it turned out.
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope I have inspired you. I just love using the Hats & Staches set. I get so inspired to create with my Basically Bare embellishments, they are so much fun to use.
