Americans seem to make journals with gusto, they include fabric pages and add anything and everything. You only need to look at Pinterest and Etsy to see these beautiful creations in abundance.
I LOVE the mixed up look, nothing is straight or plain ... they are very over the top.
Yet here in the Uk we seem to steer away from craziness. (this is a general observation and am not including everyone but something i have noticed from my searching and browsing).
I have never dared to make the journal i really wanted to. Then i started an altered book round robin (more on this in later post) and i made the journal i have always wanted to. It got great feedback. This inspired me.
Taking the plunge i made a Christmas journal using bits and pieces that have been collected over the years:
It went down very well and have now even been asked to make one for next Christmas!! Can't wait!!
I have since made some pirate ones:
A girly dress up one:
This paper dolly is the fanciest dressed dolly you will ever know.
Many more lined up :o)
I do want to say Thank You to Deanne who really pushed me to make the style of journal i wanted to make.
