A new flexible journal

I am still loving creating journal pages and canvases Finnabair style and after making the fabulous journal at Finn’s workshop at the end of August I found a way to recreate my own journal covers that will bend over and around the pages allowing you to embellish with lots of metal and 3D trinkets.
My journal is 18 x 15 cms and I used canvas and interfacing from the fabric shop. I stamped with matte medium and sprayed to get the colours then stamped over the top of that, I also sewed around the edges.
Both for the front and back I created layers with canvas, lace and patterned card ….
… and I adhered the embellishments over the top.
I have made one set of pages of my youngest granddaughter…..
… creating the photos within a collage ….
…. using a glittery patterned paper for the background.
Using a paperclip, stamped butterfly, ruler ribbon and other letters and ephemera, the pages came together.
The colours I used reflected the colour of Maddison's jumper.

Just to let you know I will have been blogging for  four years on Wednesday and I think a giveaway will be in order, keep your eyes open.

Hope you've had a great weekend
