I just love to make journals. Sort of an extension of card making I think. When I find the beautiful bird images on Graphic Fairy I know I can add them to layers of great papers and add lots of pretty embellishments. This time I used my favorite polka dot from Jenni Bowlin, some buttons, tiny metal clips, chipboard, rubbons, and a cute little bow. The pages inside are lined, and there’s a small elastic strap to keep it closed. I did a fair amount of inking also…to give it instant age.
