Elephant Altered Journal

I've completed the Elephant Altered Journal and only used 4 of the 5 papers from my set 1 Counterfeit Kit.

I used the elephant paper from DCWV Safari Chic Stack to cover the front of the album.

For the inside pages I used the DCWV Ultimate Premium Stack - Natural to cover the inside front and back covers.  I had two pieces of this paper so I was able to make the inside covers the same.  For the pack on the front cover I used the map paper from the DCWV Safari Chic Stack.

I had planned on using the leaf paper from the DCWV Ultimate Premium Stack for the pocket on the back page.  I did not because I had enough of the map paper for the second pocket.  The place mark is attached to the back cover (back inside cover, ribbon, inside cover paper).

I used the paper with the tree on the back of the album. 

Since I use wet glue for this I allow the album to dry for a couple of days before I start adding the pockets and the charm.

Thanks for stopping by.
