A New Passion!!!

Sometimes, you just know! And I just knew it would be this way.....

.....I LOVE making my own journals using a coptic stitch!! This was so fun to make! This was built using the Stonehenge papers that I talked about in this post. I used elastic cording for a closure and the button was just a very lucky find! You can see that I alternated the gray (putty) and white papers for interest. The overall size is about 6 x 6 inches (15.24 x 15.24 cm).

This journal has a dedicated purpose (hopefully) that will be revealed later. I want to test painting on the paper before I commit to its possible purpose so I'm sure you'll be hearing more about the paper in the future.

Now, for a trip in a totally different direction, I used Canson Edition watercolor paper (more here).....

....and the brightest material I had in my supply cabinet! (Not really. I have others that are as bright or brigher.) The pineapple art is a postage stamp that has been given a wax seal. The paper under the stamp is the same as the interior cover. Again, the size is about 6 x 6 inches (15.24 x 15.24 cm).

And I gotta tell you, Sam and I are hooked! Loved making these and can't wait to make more! For now though, we need to get busy filling them!
