Prayer Journal

Quite a while ago I bought this notebook at Target but never did anything with it, but now was the time. I am using it for my prayer journal. I love butterflies and because they remind me of the renewal we get from our connection with Christ I decided to use butterflies as the theme.
This is the front. I painted it with forest moss distress paint first, then dabbed it with wild honey distress paint then dabbed it with Inca gold metallic acrylic paint. After it dried I stamped the images with memento black ink. I had to dry the ink with the heat gun otherwise the ink would smear over the pain. I colored the images with prisma colored pencils. Next I put star dust stickles on the swirls. The butterfly images is from Red Rubber Designs.
Here is a picture with the cover open.
The words are from a stamp set by the Craft's Meow which recently went our of business. :(
Here is a picture of the back.
The gerbera daisy is from Red Rubber Designs. The border is from the angel company, I think. (another out of business stamp company)
And lastly a picture of the notebook open.
The cover wraps all around the notebook.
I am entering this the sparkle challenge at Red Rubber Inspirations.
