Good Morning my fabulous friends! 
Are you enjoying the wonderful and creative projects that Eileen Hull design team has shared so far using her Book Club 2 Collection from Sizzix!!! 
They will be available soon in your local Scrapbook Store, at the Sizzix Store or in Eileen Etsy Shop!!!
Today I created a Nature Mixed Media Wrapped Journal using Alcohol Inks. 

Begin by cutting several pieces of the Surefire Aluminum Tape.
Emboss with the Basket Weave Embossing Folder.
Remove adhesive backing and add to Wrapped Journal that has been cut out from mat board. 
Ink using Ranger’s Alcohol Inks; dry. 

To create inside pages…
Cut the sewing strings from on Mini Composition book. 
Separate into 4 equal piles. 

Cut  15 pages from copy paper to measure 4 1/2″ x 6 1/8″. 
Fold in half. 

Stamp your Grunge images to top of created copy paper pages. 
Ink Grunge flowers with Colorbox Blends

Repeat until you have 4 sets of stamped and inked sets. 
Layer pages together inside a pattern paper cover and staple at the bind to create Signature Pages.  
Color elastic with Colorbox Blends; dry. 
Tie prepared signature page inside Wrapped Journal .
Adhere large metal knob over the elastic ties. 

Die cut Gadget Gears our with covered pattern paper chipboard. 
Mat to pattern paper; ink edges with Nutmeg Colorbox Blend. 
Adhere to top of Wrapped Journal .

Apply alcohol ink to top of large metal dragon fly; dry. 
Adhere to top of Wrapped Journal .

Fussy cut and layer two butterflies from pattern paper; adhere to journal.

Add small metal nail head and black gemstone to center of prepared flowers. 
Adhere a piece of ribbon under the front of gear on front of Wrapped Journal  and a piece under back of same gear.
