DT Quixotic Paperie - Gorjuss Moleskines

Hi everyone! How are we all doing with our Holiday preparations?? I am waaaaaaaay behind with just about everything from shopping to cleaning but I'm a last minute kinda gal when it comes to Christmas anyway. I love the panic that is Christmas eve when you realise you forgot to get your mother's gift!! lol.

I recently purchased some moleskine cahier journals to alter as a gifts for my 2 under-appreciated/over-worked  DT Leaders on PaperPlay ChallengesDee and Julie

I  remember a discussion a long time ago, with Julie, about how I always coloured Gorjuss girls with blonde hair, so, just for her, I went with black hair, lol.

I stamped Gorjuss - Toadstools on the front of each journal with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured them with Copic Markers. I was afraid the copic ink would seep through the kraft but it didn't -  AT ALL!! Then I stamped each of their names underneath the image and added 3 flat backed pearls and some ribbon to embellish. 

As both ladies have received their journals I can finally blog them :)
