Fun Project

Here are some photos of a recent project I have been working on....I discovered an online class called "Remains of the Day Journal" through a blog called "Dispatch from LA".  The designer makes THE MOST amazing journals out of fabric scraps and papers and ephemera.  I am going on a little BIG overseas trip later in the year and decided I also needed a journal.  I am not really one to write in a diary (except for work stuff) but thought it would be an ideal opportunity to write a journal whilst I am away.

So here are some photos of my completed Journal Cover and a few of the pages I hope to write on, collect tickets and other bits and pieces whilst travelling.

The Journal Cover closed:

The Cover fully open:

Inside the cover: I just LOVE this fabric...Kaffe Fassett at his best!!!

Some of the pages/inserts for the Journal:

You may have gathered by some of the pages that I might be travelling to Europe...yep, my very first trip to Europe... I am going to Italy, Paris, London, Brugge and Germany....nearly 6 weeks away and I am so excited about this trip and the adventures I am going to is still several months I won't go on too much about it....hope this journal is inspiring to you....checkout this blog to see more wonderful journals.
