These came as a custom request from a dad for his two young kids. I took the opportunity to add pages saved from an old New Zealand Woman’s Weekly magazine. The magazine spread which has fun facts and questions for kids consists of 2 pages. I included one page to each journal. And since the recipients are siblings they can exchange to read what’s on the corresponding page if they wanted to.
These journals are wrapped with an adjustable cotton cord.
Here’s another idea for using with a small embossing folder which embosses five stalk-like pattern.
Do they look more like candles?
Grey, or more specifically concrete-like grey is my favourite background when I photograph my craft projects. I have also long wanted a concrete background on a card and so here it is.
Is this concrete enough?
Here’s a journal cover made with book pages from a thrifted book on butterflies. I also roped in pages from two other old book to decorate the inner pages.
Pages from a early 1990s book on butterflies were used on the cover and on two of the inside pages. This journal was made for a charity sale as well.
On this journal cover I chose a patterned paper with stripes and the patterns simply led the way to a stripes + lines theme throughout the inside pages.
Journal cover and its pages were hand stitched together. This was made for a charity sale.
