The (first) Finished Journal πŸ€“πŸ““

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my first journal. 😊

There will be lots of pictures…so you might wanna grab a cup of coffee or tea, sit back, and (hopefully) enjoy πŸ˜ƒ

This one is different than the first pages I showed you last week. I took a bound book, and worked on those pages.

The book I chose was ‘Alice in Wonderland’.

Here it is with a few pages of coffee-stained paper…

The inside cover

On the left is a piece of handmade paper I found in a Thrift Shop. I made envelopes, pockets and tags – you’ll find them, and some original illustrations, throughout the journal…

The back-inside cover

Here are some tags and inserts…

All of them have a decorated front, and a blank back…lots of room for writing and doodling 😍

In the end I felt that the vintage look of the inside didn’t really match the plastic-y cover. So I gave it a new cover 😁 What do you think?

This is the end of my ‘ Show and Tell’ πŸ˜… I hope you enjoyed the little trip into the Wonderland. Did you? A little note in the comments would be greatly appreciated! πŸ’•

I’ll see you soon! Take care! πŸ€—
