Winter Fun Photo Journal

Winter Fun photo journal Front coverfront cover
I spent the afternoon working on a winter themed photo journal that I plan on giving as a gift.
I've been collecting snow/winter themed papers, stickers, and embellishments for sometime now. I used mat board for the pages and cut the pages 5 x 10 inches, and the 2 half pages 5 x 5. On some of the papers after they were cut, I sprayed them with white Perfect Pearls mist for a sparkly finish. I didn't embellish this journal too much, because I don't know where the recipient will place the photos. I plan on giving a package of embellishments with the journal so it can be finished when the photos are placed into the journal. On the white book rings I tied sheer white ribbon, and silver and blue eyelash fibers.

I haven't decided if I am completely done with this photo journal. I looked for a long time trying to find pretty winter/snow themed papers.
