Speckled Egg Spring Journal Swap

I received this awesome package from Terri at Primtiques.
She did such an awesome job. I love the pocket full of my favorite flower and the awesome extra papers and charms to create my own!

My partner for the speckled Egg’s spring Journal swap is Terri and she said her favorite color was a robin’s egg blue. I started with a VERY colorful perforated page journal that I was luck enough to find and spray painted it what was supposed to be a light blue, but it turned out more seafoam green (good for spring). I had taped off the blue robin so it wouldn’t be covered with paint. Then I found a ribbon with several blue shades in the weaving. I found these 3D robin’s egg blue pansy flowers that I lined the edge of the book with. The journal I found had a satin ribbon page marker which I embellished with the robin’s egg blue pansy type flowers. I embellished with inspirational sayings on the front and on random pages. In honor of spring and new growth I tried to keep it simple not to mention I loved the high school type dymo tape sayings. High school was the last time I used a composition book. I’ll let Terri do the majority of the embellishing with her words, drawings and doodles.

I am so glad you like it! And thanks so much for the sneak peek at my ohhhhh so lovely journal! I can’t believe I missed the mailman.It was so much fun getting to know you and I hope we will be cyber friends forever! Your blog looks so Springy and I love your header! Hugs, Terri
