white garden journal

Good morning! Today I am back at Crafts 4 Eternity where we have a tic tac toe recipe for you to follow. Simply create a project using three items in a row from the grid below, they can be chosen vertically, horizontally or diagonally, as long as they are all in a row.
My project reads the diagonal from the top right corner to the bottom left: lace, twine, layers.

I decided to make a garden journal, using mainly a white on white theme, as I've (shock horror) never done this before, but have often admired it when others have done it.

I have a pearlised white cardstock background and have used a Tim Holtz ~ Brick Wall embossing folder to create the uhhh ... brick wall!

The banner was created with a Magnolia ~ Flag Doo Hickey to which I added some twine and Prima pearls.

I couldn't resist adding a touch of wood with the Prima clock and a birch heart. The heart is sitting on the Magnolia ~ So Wrapped Lovely Doo Hickey die.

I carried on the wood coloured theme, when I created the garden with a Martha Stewart branch punch.

I added Magnolia Fence and Grass dies together with little tiny flowers with pearl centres. The bird is a Prima bird resin.

Here is the binding for my journal, where I've used silky crush ribbon and added a Prima trinket.

I am entering this in at the following challenges:
Thank you for looking.
