The Journal Series
I had a great time stitching up this batch of journals with favorite bits of fabric, and lovely bright white recycled papers for my AlyTheRed shop.
The insides all look the same, from vintage woven canvas, and I added my fav hand carved stamp as a sort of signature, and a clip for all those pesky notes and receipts that float around. Now we can organize them! You'll have to provide your own pencil. I like to keep mine tucked into the last page I left off. Wrap and go!
Hand made, hand sized, 40 blank pages for use as a garden journal, food journal, party planner, travel, dreams, sketch, ink drawing, to do list.... wait,THAT's not fun. I forbid these journals to be used as to-do lists. :-)
Some of the covers feature lovely Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I love everything he does. I found a wonderful little video of him discussing what he adores about patterns and world travel.
I like to call this one the Wee Yellow journal, and it features some linen gum tree leaves I'd appliqued a long while ago. Perfect for this cover.
