I’ve been doing a lot of journaling lately in one way or another but have gotten quite quite fed up with scratching my notes on uninspiring plain notebooks and scrap paper. So I took a little time recently to make myself a new art journal which offers a little more inspiration to get creative.
Paper beads and kebab sticks make an interesting and decorative spine.
A few words of inspiration and some beaded and hand stitched embellishing.
A creative cover page.
And because there’s often nothing worse than staring at a blank white page, I pre-painted the pages.
A little hand stitching on the back and it’s done!
Do you ever finish a project only to think it’s too pretty to use?
I’m trying not to go there.
