Well, January has had a good start, and we have arrived on the 3rd day already.....hmmmmm I've already started to hear that ole familiar woooooshing sound! LOL!!
I was playing around with making a new travel journal......after watching numerous You Tube videos. This is the end result, a tri fold covered, half fold sheets of cardstock, 4 signatures of 3 sheets, folded in half....making 24 pages........got that???
I used a piece of stiff felt for the cover, then a wide piece of sunflower fabric (left over from my fall table cloth) and a pocket I cut off an old pair of jeans....they no longer fit anyway....*grin*
The ribbon actually runs through the shank button I sewed on, so that I wouldn't loose the ribbon. The charms were hot glued on.
This is the back cover, I did take a moment and stitched the sunflower fabric on at the bottom, so it left me with some extra pockets......for extra stash. Beats carrying zip lock bags every where. My butt must be BIG, since the pocket, on the front, came all the way around to the back!!
The inside flap, with an other pocket for goodies.
While roaming Blogland, this morning, I stopped by Lorraine's blog, Paper Verissage and she had a post up of a Photo Challenge from Planet Clare. I hopped over there and took a look at the challenge list and thought I might give it a try. Today the challenge is "blue", figuring the travel journal fits, along with this photo of our fireplace mantel. I do have a thing about cobalt blue glass.
What is tomorrows challenge? You'll have to come back tomorrow, or jump over to Clare's blog....or do both.....
Are YOU up for the challenge? Her list is interesting......
