Star journal

 Hello friends 
I hope you are good! 

Just a quick post to share a bit of a mash up of products I used to create this mini note book journal. 
The die is the Eileen Hull notebook die from sizzix  cut from mount board. 
I then added lots of layers of gesso, Paperartsy chalk paints, Decoart media and some distress paints 
The Ruler stamp is by Tracy Evans at AAll and create(235)
I was lucky to sneak a quick visit to see Tracy at The Creative craft show at the weekend in Birmingham, Tracy was demoing her stamps and sharing lots of fabulous techniques. 
I only had a few minutes to shop so I decided to go for the Ruler stamp as it combines my love of all things vintage and numbers. 
I then added more stitching to the book and some Idea-ology paper clips and star and punched out the word journal using my demo machine
As always please do feel free to leave a comment, its great to know you popped by 

Have a great week 



  1. This is such a gorgeous grungy mash up! I just love the look of the layers of paint, combined with the sewing and your embellishments, it’s perfect!

  2. This is just gorgeous. I adore all the painted layers and the rulers look so fabulously authentic. Love love love ❤️❤️❤️

  3. Kaz, this cover is stunning, I love how you used the ruler stamp, I can't wait to use it now! Love this. Hugs, Anne xx

  4. I really love the shade of green and the texture of it all. Seeing the rulers reminded me of the ruler embossing folders and stamps I have and haven't used in a long time. I wonder what it is about numbers that is so appealing. There are times I'll look a piece and fix it all by adding a number. It is as though you add a story or a secret and that just seems to enhance the piece. Lovely journal. Oh, and I caught up with additional browsing on your posts. Congratulations on taking the leap of faith and leaving your day job to redirect your life. It's brave and likely will be a very wise move.

  5. Pinned this fabulous Journal! LOVE every detail!
