Glampy Nature Journal

I love being outdoors in the summer, but my idea of roughing it is a hotel without room service.  When nature beckons, I want to be prepared.  I added a little feminine romance to an otherwise plain Nature Journal with a little help from The Rubber Café


The butterflies were stamped with the Butterfly Set and colored with distress markers.  The background was stamped using the 18th Century Proclamation stamp.
 
 
Originally, the journal was a simple and inexpensive notebook with a kraft paper cover.  By adding some natural elements such as the twig and leather cording, it soon took on the appearance of a nature journal.  Pearls, lace, and pearl jellie dots were attached with my Scrap Happy Glue for some much needed bling.
 
 
Enjoy the outdoors.
Happy Stamping!
