Prompt Mini Book for Art Journaling... with Corrugate!

I had such a great time with my new Homemade Corrugate technique that I decided to make a mini book.  This is a 3" wide, 3x4" book.  All the divider pages are made with the corrugate, I just love the grungy feel!

For the cover I wanted to make it extra special.  I made a little flower with Tim Holtz Filmstrip Ribbon.  I attached them with a brad through some of the Tim Holtz gears.  I'm still working on this cover, but here it is so far: 

I had fun combining techniques on the page below.  I embossed the top sheet with a Tim Holtz Texture Fade which I inked in black.  I just LOVE the clocks!  Also in this picture you can see a close up of the LindyStampGang Moon Shadow mist.  I applied the mist while the book was closed on all four sides to give it a vintage feel... I love how the mist floated onto some of the inside pages as well.

As I mentioned in my Youtube (while you're there, don't forget to subscribe!) video, if you like more of a clean look, you can always diecut into your top layer to reveal the corrugation underneath.  Here I used a Spellbinders die:

This little book is not yet complete.  I plan to add details to all the pages you see, which are dividers for prompt categories.  I have six dividers and am planning on categories such as colour, texture, supplies etc.  Thanks to my wonderful friend Dede for the prompt inspiration!

If you'd love to see how I created this, here is the live recording.  I had such a great time!

Happy Scrapbooking Day everyone!  I hope to see you live at my show tonight.  Check it out over HERE at 9pm EST.  Don't forget to hit "join crowd" to be reminded of all my shows and recordings.

See you tonight!
Much Love!  xo

  6. Love this little book and love the technique!! It was fun watching you make it. I am looking forward to seeing what is inside and how you are organizing it. I sent you an e-mail with some ATCs I made, but I don't know if I sent to the right place, since I haven't heard from you. I'm sure you get lots of e-mails, so perhaps you just haven't come across it yet!

  7. I watched your video and heard you mention making your own glimmer mist with re-inker and perfect pearls, I tried looking for the video on Youtube and Ustream but couldn't find it. Could you help me out with that?

    BTW, I love watching you create and think that it is wonderful how you share. I don't have a crimper yet, but I am geting one today!
