So here is a little journal I made today...I only got to keep it for about an hour, then it was promptly snatched up and away to a new owner who is going to take her to Turkey, and Ephesus etc! So it will have a much better life travelling and being loved. I did 7 signatures inside using a coptic stitch on watercolor paper.
I put the definition of journal in a book plate on the cover. I used antique lace and mother of pearl buttons I had on a 1930's baby dress.
A little J from a type writer key, and blue cotton velvet stitched to the cover fabric.
A little free motion stitched message on the back with a fabric heart.
And to make sure everything stays inside a gathered ribbon elastic band to snap around the whole book with a crochet flower, button and feather. There Janne! I did it!! I blogged already! hahaha! And if I knew how to do a link, her name would be highlighted, but instead I'll just say go check out her AMAZING blog at www.spindlemaker.com You will love her. So talented and fun, and man does she sure get stuff done. I will be back tomorrow with some artfest photos, and some pics of paintings I did before Artfest...promise. :op
May your day be FULL of Joy!
