I am so happy to finally show you my finished project! I've been working on this journal project for about a month. I tried to take my time, when I could, to make it extra special and over the top!
This is a commissioned piece. The owner asked for an extra
embellished journal/scrapbook with lots of goodies. She asked
for sweets and candy, cakes and sugary treats, shabby chic and
vintage elements in her favorite colors, pink, aqua, cream, green and
bits of yellow. She wants lots of places to journal and jot down
thoughts and ideas, a few photos here and there, but mostly journaling
spots. I added plenty of tags, papers and pockets to hold her thoughts
The book is 100% handmade, pages are hand constructed and sewn together for stability.
So here you go, some photo highlights of the journal... and at the end a video so you can see how some of the pages work. Enjoy!
So here's the video... I just wanted to show some of the extras of the book that a photo can't really show.
Annnnd, can I just say, the youtube sound selection is..... terrible lacking. It took me 45 minutes to choose this music. NOT that I loved it, it's the best I could do... Jeff and I sat a laughed as we watched it... it reminds me of the old black and white movies.
