I know that these are not the best photos, but I wanted to share a handmade journal that I made with you. I used the same techniques that I teach in my "Start to Finish" workshop to make this book which uses vintage fabric and lace in combination with some modern fabric, hand stitching, an old tintype and a Tim Holtz frozen charlotte doll.
I have such an afinity for these handmade books and lately I have made several of them to give as gifts. They are nice to give, because the recipient does not have to be a scrapbooker to enjoy it. In fact, I have a few around the house that I don't even really use. They are more decorating elements in my house!
