Big tag mini journal.

Ha ha it seems to be tag week here!!
I love manila tags and to find out that Ranger have made them bigger is fantastic. When I say bigger I mean BIGGER!!

This one is 22 x 10.5cm and it's not the biggest.

I started out wanting to make a decorated tag but given it's size I thought of a tag card which then developed into a mini journal.

I thought I'd emboss it first of all and so started by folding it in half to find the centre.  This way I was able to fit it into my Sizzix embossing folder one half at a time. 

I used a Prima chalk fluid edger in Lime pie to rub over the raised parts of the embossing to show it up and add some zingy colour. 

The inside page is a piece of Glitz Colour Me Happy paper, a doily and some die cut stars. 

The middle pages were coloured using Caran D'Ache Neo Colours  by just scribbling on the page then wetting it. 

This is a closer look at the front where I die cut some flowers from left over scraps of Glitz papers and added a Prima Metal paper clip.

Happy thursday
