Fleur Fun Blank Journal with Erum

Hi everyone!!
Erum here with a gorgeous, very inky, arty Blank Journal!
Love how this turned out.
I am using the Fleur Fun papers for my project today and I decorated the cover of my blank journal.
I started by adding thick gesso to my background through a stencil. I used a heat gun to dry this quickly so that I could move onto the next step.
The next step was to apply colour and I used a mix of greens that I picked out from all the leaves from the paper!  I kept the cardstock to air dry while I fussy cut a few flowers and leaves out of the pattern paper. 
This was fairly easy to do and you don't have to be super careful while doing this. The images on this paper are quite forgiving! 
Next, I cut out a large butterfly and adhered it to a piece of cardstock leaving some space below it to place my inspirational word.  
For this I used alphabet dies and cut the letters four times and layered them up to form thick letters.

I glued them all below the butterfly. In the end, I added some text stamping using Versafine. Did this at the end because I wanted to be sure where I wanted to add more stamping and where to add a little less. I just covered the whole thing with stamping because it looked really cool!
I hope you like my project!! I am loving it! It looks so good in person!
Thank you for stopping by and all your lovely comments.
