This is the first journal cover I have done and it will become a techniques/design journal, with all my ideas for creating projects!
I used Graphic 45 embossed Coredinations black card, backed with chipboard, I sanded it back and added gilding waxes, in 'Amethyst' and 'Vintage Plum' from Sam Poole's shop HERE I added my favourite colours of Aubergine and Purple, rose trim, flowers & embellies from my own stash from Wild Orchid Crafts..

the professional (haha) angled shot
The cameo, frame and key are all made by me from air dry clay, in my handmade silicone moulds from shop bought embellishments that I made myself. They are then painted with black acrylic paint, and then waxed with several different colours, 'vintage plum' 'pewter' 'lilac gold' and 'amethyst'. The metal corner isn't a corner at all, it is a square that I have bent over the corner and glued down with acrylic glue. Some of the flowers are made by me and the rest are shop bought and waxed from my stash.
I hope you like it, thanks for looking, hugs,
