My friend, Quadira, showed a group of Toastmasters how to make a lovely journal on Monday night, so I thought I'd share the front of my journal. This is the type of journal which is made with a regular card and matching envelope size. Pages are inserted and the holes punched out and tied with string. I had never made this style of journal and it was fun to see how it all went together. I wanted to cover up the front of my card, so I embossed this flower and found a stamp & die package I had on my desk with some delightful bird die cuts from a 3D embossing folder. I had already water colored this bird and it was perfect.
We covered the envelope with patterned paper and created our individual and unique journals. Thank you to Quadira.
