We received some great adhesives products to use in our projects, PLUS this fun Denim Art Journal and Pennants Set from Donna Salazar Designs that is part of the Scrapbook Adhesive line! I've done the front design by pairing a pennant with the Stampendous Bird Stencil Duo set.
The 8" x 10" Denim Art Journal decorated with a pennant from the
Pennant Set, and the Bird Duo Stencil Set from Stampendous!

Stencil yellow ink through the stencil with a 1/2" stencil brush,
outline with the black fine pen from the stencil duo set

Apply Scrapbook Adhesive permanent E Z Runner along edges
Apply the pennant to the front cover of the journal
Tape the bird stencil on cream cardstock with removable tape,
apply a coat of Regular Embossing Paste
Remove stencil and let paste dry
Reverse the stencil and place on the back side of a piece of denim from the Pennant Set
Outline the bird with the fine line pen from the Stencil Duo set, cut out the pieces
Place the clean dry stencil back over the dry paste
Use a stencil brush to add some yellow to the beak, feet, breast, and flower,
use the Picasso stencil to shield the eye so you can add black to the eye
Remove and clean the stencil
Put adhesive on the cut out bird pieces and add them over the paste matching the design
Cut out the bird and flower
Here's how they turned out!
Apply white foam squares on the back of  the bird and flower
Remove the release paper and place the bird and flower on the cover,
add some jute "twigs" and a little bow
Add some sweet May Arts Ribbons on the rings
I know I'll be filling the inside pages (you get 6 kraft pages with the two denim covers and three rings) with more fun designs.  Watch for them in future posts!

Here's today's list of designers for you:
