A few things

Well, I didn't take care of myself well over the past few weeks and I now have a bad allergy flare up and my voice is almost gone. It's actually been rare that I have been well for New Years throughout my adult life. Bleh.... I'm laying really low this week.

Thought I'd share some pictures of several of the journals I made this month as well as some cute gift tags which I sold at the boutique. I do still have some journals for sale and need to get those in my Etsy shop.

Here are some of the journals. This one is a small spin out journal.

This journal was one of my favorites and the colors were much more intense in real life. The cover is hand dyed velvet with lavender suede for the spine. The suede was repurposed from a jacket.

This journal was made from a repurposed sweater. It was a favorite sweater for many years until it began getting holes in it! Again, the color is off in the photo. It's very butterscotch in real life. The little heart is also felted wool.

This is the fabric inside cover of the felted wool journal. Love this Lonni Rossi fabric!
This book was from the early 1900's. It was given as a Christmas gift. When I deconstructed it and rebound it, I included the sentimental Christmas card. This was my first journal snatched up at my Book event!

Altered composition notebook. This paper is from Italy. I wish I'd taken an up close of the focal point. I adhered Mica over the central butterfly piece. The spine is covered in vintage wall paper which I painted.
This journal was the largest one I made with 5 signatures. It's a sturdy journal.

This is another of the journals made with the lavender suede. I used a jewelry toggle for the closure on this one. I really like this journal!

I did some fun pages in this journal using up lots of bits and pieces and doing some stitching on the pages. Really fun to do.

Your journals are truly works of art. I'm sure they'll sell very well.
