I signed up for a Round Robin Journal Swap on Kindred Souls Art Group. We pick our own theme, size (between 6x6 - 10x10 or so). I decided on a theme of Inspirational Quotes Illustrated in a Shabby Chic style. I decided to make my journal covers out of fabric and lace and bits of stuff I have laying around. The main part is white satin over batting over cardboard. I printed out vintage photos and stamped on some words with silver StazOn metallic ink. Sewed on lots of lace
The pages inside the journal are 6x6 grungeboard pieces bound together with large rings. To hide the rings on the outside, I tied on lots of lovely fibers. For the front & back outside covers sewed on a layer of fine mesh fabric with micro beads in it. To the front, also added lots of various laces. Added a large metal butterfly piece with some light green beads sewn on, a door charm tied on with fibers and sewed a few beads near the bottom.
fragment charm I'd made earlier.
Excited to see the pages the members create to add to my journal!!!
