Nature theme Altered Journal

Hi everyone and welcome back to my happy place!
There is another Blog Hop on the go for Imagine if and this weeks Design Team project is to use all these gorjuss chipboard laser cuts and create a "Nature theme"
Its Spring here so as im getting into the gardens I wanted to create a journal I can use to record all the information associated with that.
I used the beautiful G45 Botanical Tea collection for this project! I have created the cover by painting it with a pale blue paint then adhering the paper and a mix of trims to complement it with one of my crochet flowers and a wee birdie in a nest (Imagine if has these) 
With a selection of chipboard, paper, inks, paints, washi tape, paper clips I have created my Gardening Journal

Lots of space for notes on what's happening in the garden

I added tuck spots for seed i will collect once the vegies are finished for next years planting!
 Wee envelope for special seeds.
As this is the Botanical Tea collection this cute chipboard cup works perfect as a tuck spot.
This is my favourite page using the fence, bird and swamp plant all laser cut chipboard pieces from Imagine if and i can tuck in behind the fence. 

I hope you enjoy the blog hop as much as I have enjoyed creating this project!
