Finally we had a little sunshine and I was able to take photos (a lot of photos) of my spring beauties journal. I'l warn you there are a lot of photos, but I wanted to be able to show you as many details as I could.
Inspired by spring, I grabbed all sorts of my favorite materials and spent two wonderful days playing away. I used vintage wallpaper, hankies, lace, millinery, and more. -You know all of our favorite things. :)
I used vintage ephemera and charms from my Jolis Oiseaux kit.
(I meant to go back and add a little glitter to the centers of those flowers, so please pretend that you see old silver glitter there, ok?)
Normally, I would have sewn my book together, but I was at the lake, and decided just to use my adhesives. I think sewing would have added a nice texture to the pages, though. And I do still plan to sew the pages together, but kept the pages separate for photographing.
I enjoyed making this book so much, I decided to turn it into a kit. You can read more about the details and order the kit here. The kit will come with all of the materials to make this art journal, as well as extras so that you can make it your own. I am taking orders on the kit until Monday, April 23rd, and they will ship just a couple of days later. Once the kits have shipped, a full color pdf tutorial will be emailed to you explaining how to construct and embellish your journal as well as helpful hints and tips.
I hope you'll join me in creating this Spring Beauties art journal.
