My First Attempt...

One of the things that I have wanted to do for quite some time is to learn to make my own journals....so after some serious youtube-ing....I decided to give it a go..

I used some really cool paper on the cover that I found at Jerry's this weekend, and I used some of my hand dyed fabric on the inside....I actually got to whip out my sewing machine and do a bit of stitching around it....so much fun!!



This was a ton of fun...except for the red stains that are on the first signature that I sewed in, and lets just say its not paint!!!OUCH!
I will post pics of my weekend at the Jerrys ArtaThon..I have a special surprise for you all....It was at least special for me!
Until next time,
Ophelia

What a little cutie your daughter is and so talented too.
I love journalling so must make an effort to actually make a journal. Well done to you - red marks n all!!!

Love the journal...gorgeous colour and all those lovely blank pages just waiting to be filled! I'm very much in the early stages of journaling but do like to have a go when I can.
Thanks for popping by my blog :)
