"Green" birthday gift

I made this covered journal for my "baby" sister whose birthday was yesterday.
The original book looked like this:
They are note books made from recycled paper available from Woolworths (for my SA friends).
I covered the front and pen with scrapbook paper (I think it's Basic Grey....) mounted on Tim Holtz distress paper.
The central image was stamped with "Tree Silhouettes" (GinaK Designs). I used Tim Holtz Antique Linen first to stamp three trees. I then stamped over them by first inking up the image with Tim Holtz Crushed Olive and then dabbing here and there with the tip of a Memento dew drop ink pad in Rich Cocoa before stamping.
The journal image was created on my computer.

Materials used:
Spellbinders Labels 8
Spellbinders Fancy Tags
Tim Holtz inks: Antique Linen, Crushed Olive
Memento ink: Rich Cocoa
