Wine Journal.





**First off, I have to call attention to a GASP worthy creation by Michelle Kovack. She has the fairy stamps from Crafty Secrets, and GEEZ ALMIGHTY, she's rockin' them. You can see her card HERE.





I wanted to make a wine journal with the Crafty Secrets Wood File folder album & the new wine set that is coming out after CHA (see yesterday's post). It has great little file tab sections so you can get organized. My thoughts were that you could have recipes in one section. What is a wine journal really? I'm curious as to what you record in it. If I kept a wine journal I probably wouldn't need all the tabs for it. Mine would probably just read:



Hi.


I had too much wine last night.

I have a large headache today.

Excuse me while I go nap a while.


Anyway, my version of them has the file tabbies so you can have separate sections. I took a photo of the album before I put it together, so you could see all the sections in one shot (see top photo). All of the paper is from the Crafty Secrets "Earthy" paper pad, and the scallop circle was done with Stampin Up's new Pomegranite paper. To color in the grapes and vines, I used prismacolor pencils, but they would be just as great watercolored or markered in. I like the prismacolors because you can get color to pop on darker paper. I chose the darker brown paper because it looked sort of 'corkish' to me. The rectangular distressed background on each of the file tabs is by Hero Arts, H3307 "Aged Background Block". The dark brown ink is Tim Holtz "Vintage Photo" Distress ink, and the lighter brown ink for the background is his "Antique Linen" color.




Tomorrow night: THE ENSEMBLE.

Your journals are gorgeous. Ihave a couple of friends that would love something like this. They could record the wine and where they bought it. They go on wine tasting adventures....How fun would that be?
Once again......I am purely delighted to check your blog and see an entry. You are one amazing creator of stamp art.

Holy mackerel, you did it again! The journal is amazing. So shabby chic. I keep a wine journal, listing the wine name with the occasion. I like to remember what wines I truly like.
