I am having sooo much fun with these journals! By taking a few of the art mediums I love so well and combining them into something brand new. The whole project began when I purchased (2) boxes of hardcover, perfect bound, lined journals that came with the die cut center. Within that center of the cover is placed either an interesting stamp (mostly vintage) or one of my photographs. The process doesn't end there, covers are decorated with ribbon, paper, glitter and/or more stamps then finished with a protective cover of Modge Podge which also adds a beautiful texture. The journal is completed by adding a decorative bead to the bottom of bookmarking ribbon. Voila!
Personally, I love giving journals as gifts and hope that they bring as much joy in receiving as they were in creating. We have a busy weekend ahead - kids soccer games, Halloween crafts, apple and pumpkin picking and some baking. Hope everyone has a great weekend and I will see you back here on Monday. =)
