Many of you may have seen Donna Downey's Inspiration Wednesday videos. She has posted them for many years. Anyway, I have always wondered where she purchased her journals. Well, she makes them. So, I watched her $5 class on how to make them, and I made a quick one yesterday. Click here to see the class details.
For my journal, I decided not to use grommets. I just stitched the pages directly into the fabric journal. I am not planning on adding signatures, so this works for me. This journal has 12 pages of Canson Mixed Media paper inside as well as a tag or other fun item in the center of each page. The outside fabric is a thinner cotton, and the inside is heavy canvas so it can get paint all over it. Here is a quick look. I am not sure why so many wrinkles showed up in the photo. It doesn't look like that in person. Hmmm? :)
And if you are interested in this journal, I am giving this first one away. Just leave a comment below letting me know how you might use this journal or what you like about this journal. Leave your comment by Wednesday, April 20, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern. I will then post the winner on Thursday here on my blog.
Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your Sunday afternoon!
