Whichever way you look at them, the things you put into
a handmade journal stay with you longer.
My November project for
Moving things outside meant I came across a lot of old projects
that never got finished.
One was a CD journal(maybe 10 years ago??)
I only had the 3 panels, so I set about making pages
for it using scrap watercolour papers
(just drawing round the cd and cutting out)
Next a collected a few patterned paper scraps to
rip up and add interest by gluing onto the back
of the watercolour pages...
and gessoed both sides for future use.
I also cut out 4 circles of lush Vintage paper
(again only £3 for a 12 x 12 pad from The Works)
to recover the cds. I set aside the cd with the butterfly
on for future use.
Once dry I threaded all the pieces onto a ring...
the inside pages all ready to be worked on.
For the front cover I printed out some
inspirational words and glued on, before using
Posca paint pens to make them stand out more.
As you can see, I couldn't resist some random stamping
on the pages :D
and a few strands of ribbon for added charm.
If you don't like getting messy (like I do) you could simply cut
circles from the different papers in the pad you are using...
double sided would work best as they are thicker and stronger :D
I would like to share this project for the following challenges;
