Cute Journal with Stickles

Hello,
I have the pleasure of working with some wonderful ladies on the "All That Stickles"http://allthatstickles.blogspot.com Design Team.   A blog about the many different applications and uses for those little bottles of greatness "Stickles" by Ranger.   I love using stickles in a lot of my work they can just make a project pop.  A little goes a long way with this product. I find it is very superior to regular glitter glue, as it has a lot of dimension and intense colour.  But you can check it out for yourself.  Here is a little something I had fun making.








 I used some yellow sticles which made me feel happy. As a Mixed Media artist I work in many different types of media and I keep several journals both for my creative work and for keeping track of business and household stuff.  Usually a store bought journal gets a makeover once it enters my home.
(Sorry I did not take a before picture, but it was just so plain to begin with.)  And this journal did not escape my creative hands, mwaaaa hahaha :)

I made a paper rosette with a Tim Holtz Sixxix Die, then I looped some half inch white satin ribbon into a flower, and adhered it to the rosette.  I made the centre of the flower using a bottle cap filled with glue and cardboard, a flat bottom glass pebble that had been glued with glossy accents to a small print of daisies.  I glued the glass into the bottle cap and filled the edges with yellow Stickles.  I also added drops of the yellow stickles to the paper rosette.  I hope you enjoy this and please check out the blog with all its goodies, and take part in the challenge over at All that Stickles for more Stickly fun!
