Journal completed

I mentioned in my last post that I'd almost completed a journal to go in my Etsy shop. Well it's now completed and I'm delighted that it will be winging it's way to Maggi in the UK. I will be working on another one shortly to go in my EtsyThank you Maggi. I'm so glad my journals sell as I love making them and each sale gives me the challenge to keep going.

Here's some photos of the journal.


the cover


the spine


side view


I always add little sketches that I draw on the inside of envelopes, I love the way the patterns on the envelopes show through the drawings.


fabric page with hand dyed doily


another fabric page


I always add semi blank pages now so that the owner can do their own thing


I still have to add the occasional graphic though


as well as prints of my artwork

Thanks again for visiting and your lovely comments.

I've often wondered how people journal in your journals! :) As they mostly seem made out of gorgeous fabric...fabric pens?? But now i see you add at least some paper. So pretty! Hugs! deb
