I bought a old ledger...and decided that the yucky brown color was not a happy color for me...so I watered down lime green paint and painted it up!! I love the color!!! I replaced the old papers inside with watercolor papers!!
I took a class from Mary Ann Moss from Dispatch From LA. She is teaching a class called Full Tilt Boogie!! Loved the class!! You learn how to bind 5 different books.
....... side shot!!
... inside the journal!! I have decided to make this my doodle book. I will sit on my couch while I am watching TV...and doodle away!!!
Now, I want to make a closure for this book!! So, I gathered all kinds of cool stuff..and sat down to my sewing machine...and just started playing around!!!
You know I had to use Kaffe...I love his fabric sooo much!!
Then I just started adding layers of goodies!!
Until I was happy with the results.... I really think it turned out cool!!! Now to put it on the book.....
Close up.... The teal ribbon comes from the back and wraps around the black and white button!! All I did was glue the whole piece down onto the book on the front and around to the back!! It turned out just great!! Very pleased with this book.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my new doodle journal!!
Like I said...I will come back to quilting....I am in a phase right now..and art journaling is just easier for me. I hope you all understand!!
Many hugs to you all!!!
