Un petit journal ~


Fancy, huh?
I just love that it says a small nature journal in French ~



We have a new Good Will that opened just a few days ago so
I had stop by to have a look!
I only found a few books and this was one of them.
It's not very big and is a wonderful kraft color....
Yes, the pages are printed on, but I have an idea to slice out a few
and continue embellishing them with some of my nature finds!


I started with the outside and completely covered it...



I just slathered on my fav matte gel medium,
pressed the paper on and trim out excess
with my handy exact-o knife.



I had to add the name of this sweet journal ~



See the color of the pages? A great foundation for my project.



I started digging in my files to find images that I'd already printed ~



I've even pulled out my pressed botanicals so I can add them too!



Well, it's a start!!
Now to begin the inside pages....



My prairie girl has reached her new home and she fits in perfectly!!
Thank you so much Deb....





Wishing you an amazing Wednesday precious friends ~
hugs and love,
Dawn

It's wonderful! You have such a creative, wonderful mind! I love to stop by and see what you have done and you never let me down, it's always a great project and creative idea! I hope you keep a photo journal of all the things you do with the poems. That would be something to treasure! As a matter of fact, have you ever thought of doing a book? I mean seriously, I see the books out there and your creations are easy enough to copy and they're always affordable to do. Think about it!!!!!!!!! xoxo-you favorite blog stalker cindy

Sweet Dawn- Oh my goodnes, what a beautiful journal you started- so lovely altered, and love the front, with tattered fabric, and the twine around the back- I know it will be filled with natures wonders.
I still have the little journal I bought from you years ago, laying on my bureau- I love it very much, filled as it is with beautiful pages.
Have a wonderful day dearest friend.
Hugs and love~ Dorthe

I just can't seem to get the "nerve" to get started on a project...so such perfection/experience in making yours ...to live up to.
