Dog Days Of Summer Challenge with Gecko Galz

I'm on the Gecko Galz blog today with projects following the challenge theme this month -- Dog Days Of Summer.

To catch a video project share of my creations, view my video Mermaid Junk Journal, Notebook, and Card for Gecko Galz Dog Days Of Summer Challenge on my YouTube channel.

I used various dies from La-La Land Crafts and Spellbinders and stencils from Stampers Anonymous, Honey Bee Stamps, and Echo Park.

My last project is a junk/art journal. I used scrap corrugated cardboard for the covers that measure roughly 4.25" x 5.5" (give or take). I used thick gel medium to adhere the layering papers, under and atop, giving them a nice glossy "wet" look. The idea is that I can add pages at leisure, binding with book binding rings vs. a coil which would not easily allow for new pages. This is the first book I've made like this and I really enjoyed the process. I intentionally left blank spots for added pictures, graphics, or text.
