Seashell Treasure Journal Book

Watched the eclipse here in Central TX where we had a 75% totality. Since we did not have the eclipse glasses we used empty cereal boxes that hubby made into viewing devices after seeing the boxes on tv. Hubby also had a pair of welding glasses that he doubled one lens up and covered up the other and with the black flimsy things that an eye doctor gives you placed inside your eye glasses. Watched CBS with NASA photos and the viewing areas of: Oregon, Jackson Hole & Illinois. Was fascinating to see this.

Made this journal book with a Seashell theme using Die-Namics die & My Fav Things stamps. Adhered the seashell paper to Kraft cardstock before die cutting. Die cut & saved the negative. Used the negative to place the pieces on front and put the negative on inside cover. Added white paper to inside. Added washi tape & twine.
