My Creations Journal cover for Play Date Cafe

Finally getting around to doing/posting some more artwork! I've been experimenting with the My Creations Journal, which is a 5x7 size with a pocket on the front cover made from our Memory Protector material where you can slide in photos/artwork. It really allows you to customize the cover based on what you want to use the journal for, and at $7.95 is a great gift idea.

Anyway, I saw this week's Play Date Cafe challenge--incorporating a splash of color--and thought it would be perfect for a journal cover. This was really an easy project to do, great for keeping my hands busy while catching up on some TV shows. I used the edge distresser on the black and white stripes that I layered over a scrap of red paper, and ran that whole piece through the paper trimmer afterwards to make sure I got a nice clean edge on both sides.

The letters are from the 'Typewriter Keys' alphabet set, and then I used a Kraft Border sponged with black to finish up the left hand side.

I really like how the border mimics a spiral ring notebook, and the lines/stripes also kind of speak to a notebook in an abstract way.
