Mixed Media Cherry Blossoms

IMG_2234

I wanted to keep the front of this journal simple. I found a great leaf paper in The Mixed Media Paper Collection by Recollections. I cut out some extra branches to add extra depth.

For the cherry blossoms, I used a pale pink card stock and my Mini Floret Dies from Heartfelt Creations. I crumpled the smallest Floret for the buds. For the open flowers, I used a 2mm Flower Shaper and only shaped the front edge of each petal. The stamens are done with white card stock and inked with a Bubblegum pink.

For the leaves, I used the Open Leaf Die by Heartfelt Creations on a darker pink paper. I used a quilling tool to shape the leaves.

To finish off the journal, I layered pink seed beads with pearls on pins and inserted them between the flowers.

This will make a great gift.

As always, share your creativity with others.
