Clear Scraps - Write Your Own Story Journal

Hello, my friends!

I'm back with a new project share for Clear Scraps!

This week I have created a fun journal using two pages from the Chipboard 6 X 6 Regular Album.
this album comes with five pages, so I have three pages left over for an other project. 

Here's the journal:

I began by dusting the naked chipboard with my embossing powder tool.
 I was going to be doing some heat embossing, 
and didn't want the embossing powder sticking where it wasn't supposed to.
Next I positioned the 6" Write Your Story Stencil in place on the front cover. 
Then I took a nice juicy Versamark ink pad, and inked through the stencil. 
I made sure that the entire image had been well inked before removing the stencil. 
Then I heat embossed the image using white embossing powder.

Next I colored the background, using a combination of three Distress Oxide Inks.
I misted it with water, allowing a few water drops to fall.
Then I used a baby wipe to wipe the color off of the embossing.
I repeated the inking process for the back cover.

This is a journal, created to write in, so the pages had to serve that purpose.
I pulled out my 12" Prima Ledger Paper Pads and chose a few pages.
I cut them down to 6" square, rounded the corners, 
punched holes in them, and inserted them between my covers.

Here's one last look at my finished album:
