Part 3 of 3, Cover for my Handmade Paper Journal

This has been a wonderful paper journal to make.  USArtQuest handmade papers made this a very special paper journal.  Today I am going to share the cover of my journal.  I am very pleased with the outcome. I hope you enjoy it!
To start cover the front of the book and the back with USArtQuest handmade papers, adhere with PPA.  

Adhere lace with PPA around the border of the front cover.

Use a Glam Frame Sticker to frame a Marie Antoinette Altered Pages collage image... use metallic rub-on to distress the frame.

Mist three shabby roses with desired colors.  Finally spray with gold Shimmer Mist, let dry. Speed up drying with a heat tool, being careful not to burn the fabric.
The gold Shimmer Mist gives the shabby roses a vintage look.  Once the roses are dry add a little bit of PPA to the edges and sprinkle with USArtQuest Mica D'lights!  This add more dimension and sparkle.
First add Glam Frame Sticker around fussy cut Marie Antoinette Altered Pages collage imageLayer a second image of Marie Antoinette, add German scrap crown to the top of the frame. 

Adhere paper flower folded in half below the Glam Frame Sticker, with PPA add USArtQuest Prills to create the flower center.  With PPA add Mica D'lights to the paper flower and around the edges of the cover.
Add feather with PPA, adhere the shabby roses! Finally add a lot of ribbon to the rings holding the book together!
I hope you have enjoyed my journal using papers from USArtQuest!
