Journal making

One of the journals I created using the brown paper that covers my art table ♥
{ front cover}
I have a box of little treasures & went through it looking for an embellishment. I found one of my Diary keys from my teen years ~ tied on with a ribbon
{back cover}
the elastic is recycled & cut to the width I wanted
I added a few envelopes ~ front and back  as I love to save "stuff" :-D
Perfect for holding little inspiration/affirmation cards
I created it fauxdori style ... with elastic to hold sheets of paper .
Started out with a dozen, but more can be added as I need them.
It will be my 2017 garden journal.
Just the cover alone makes me think of my English country garden and
the old fashioned perennials that I {and the birds/butterflies/bees} love so much!
"Fill your paper
with the breathings
of
your heart"

I can only imagine how special this is for you to spend time working on. I've been trying to space time out to work on my journaling and the 52 Lists book I found to write and draw in freely. I need to focus and you always inspire me. Can you give me a call tomorrow morning?!
