i've been a busy sewing bee in the craft room, finishing up my Remains of the Day journal. Mary Ann Moss is truly a gifted instructor and I've SO enjoyed her style.
the front cover:
i used fabric remnants, wool felt, seam binding, vintage velvet ribbon and loads of vintage lace scraps I've been saving for that "something special..."
the front cover opened up:
the back cover:
I included a page from a vintage children's book that had a lovely bird engraving...
a few more close-ups: loving the contrast between the luxe and the shabby, the new and the worn...
next up: the inside "signatures" -or- pages.
Your ROD journal is beautiful. I love all the little details and the bird is so sweet.

It's absolutely beautiful! I'm doing the ROD class as well...having the best creative time doing it! Still working on my signatures.....I guess I'm too picky...but they are taking me forever! I don't get how others are whipping them out so fast! LOL!
The colors and shabbiness of your journal is just so romantic!
