Hiking Edwin Journal

This new Hiking Edwin and the Background were a couple of favorites out of this collection.  Plus there were acorns and leaves to go with them and I could use some fall colors!!!
Decided to make a little journal instead of a card this time.
Can't possibly have everything flat, so I did cut out the leaves and acorns and layered them.  I crunched the leaves up a little to give a little shape. Water colored with Distress Inks which was so fun!!!  The embossing folder is Stampin' Up!, added some jute twine and a little white gel pen for accents.

These are Magnolia stamps from the new Turning Leaves Collection and you can find them at Diana's Magnolia-licious!  Edwin and the Background are also available in the mini version.  Be sure and check out all the great buys and offers Diana has for all of us!!!

Here are the links to the stamps I used:
He is quite the handsome lad isn't he???!!!

Appreciate the visit and thanks for stopping by!!!  I'm thinking I want to work on those darling sewing Tilda's next!!!

Enjoy every day!!!

C'est tres bon! At first glance I thought they were real acorns and leaves, colouring is amazing, so realistic. I think a journal like this would inspire me to "hike"
