What a fabulous idea from the lovely Lin Brown making a journal to carry around. Personalising it too is so special that I wanted one.
So I followed her instructions as best I could. This is the person who has never yet stuck properly to a recipe. I didn't have any canvas and can never wait to get stuff so I found some canvas -style fabric.
I used similar colours to Lin and had to use PA Chartreuse as it is still my fave!
I used greyboard and stuck to the 5x7 size.
The hardest bit was stamping onto the acetate. Because it slips, I found myself getting so far and then ruining it so this was my 3rd attempt.
I glued some gold lace as a panel down the front of the book and used wired ribbon for my spine.
I didn't have much in the way of decent paper to put inside so used a pile of envelopes instead. so I can make notes and store bits inside.
Thankyou Lin for setting me off again. I think that I would like to camp out in your craftroom!
