WELL!!! Here I go again!
I do not know what I did except waste an hour publishing the post about my lace journal..
Sorry to those that took the time to come see....and there was nothing!
Anyway I was so excited to finally finish Carole Brungar's workshop on an altered lace journal. It was a wonderful experience. Carol gives a fabulous workshop taking you by the hand with every step. Thank you Carole for dragging me out of my box!!
This is the front cover of the journal
I get used books they sell at our library($1.00 for a grocery bag full!!!) so the little card holders at the back are good to use also and add interest
The tag for the book mark has a butterfly sitting on a silk leaf with an added tassel
That's all I will take time to show.I have lots more pages but this will give you an idea of how I did the book.
Now I feel it is too pretty to actually write in!!!

I am in love with anything miniature and since I am into making journals right now I decided to do some mini journals and make them into a keychain...
I used some leather for the covers and the closures and added a wee bead
The yellow one is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" and the brown one is 2 1/2" x 3 1/2".I am using cold press watercolor paper and for the small ones it is a bit hard to work with due to the thickness.. however I did manage to get 25 pages in there. Room for many little thoughts .
