So I told you about my latest obsession which is tea staining paper and then using the paper to make journals. Well I did another batch of papers last week and so I did a little more work on my journal. I am really happy with the results
I changed the cover a little bit and once I was happy with it I gave it a coat of tar gel. This makes it stiffer and also adds a nice little gloss to the cover.
This is the first page once you open the journal and I love it!
I had printed out sheets of birds for an easter project I was working on and I had some birds left so I decided to include them in the pockets of this journal
I painted some of my favorite vintage looking blue on some of the pages!
A little bit of lace sewn in ...
I printed directly on my aged paper and it turned out really cool
lots of pockets
I stuffed the pockets with all kinds of things including little torn bits of my aged paper!
isn't that a great pocket. I printed some of my favorite quotes on velum and then cut the velum into different sizes to make the pockets!
So I am off to start another one!
