Wrap around journal

Hi everyone,

I was looking through my photographs and realised that I had not blogged about this journal I made a couple of weeks ago for the Colourcraft design team blog…

The first is a faux skin textured Halloweeny style wrap around journal, made using leftover tissue paper and string.. there is a full photo tutorial over on the Colourcraft blog if you would like to see how.. just click here and it will take you there

Indigo Ink Tie Dye and Book Binding

Hi everyone,

I thought I would share photos from another workshop that I attended back in May, it was an Indigo ink Tie Dye and book binding workshop held at the Granton Hub in Edinburgh.

It was a fabulous workshop where you learned to Tie Dye fabric with Indigo ink then use your fabric to make a book… the tutors were fabulous Elizabeth and Cassandra .. they can be found here and here if you are looking to do something like this in the future

Here are my photographs from the day…

Thanks for popping round

Leather Travel Journal

Hi Everyone!..

I bought a 3 pack of nice notepads at my local supermarket (asda) this morning because I wanted to make a travel journal… I had bought a leather bundle off Amazon about a month ago with this project in mind and also for making a few other upcoming projects too πŸ™‚

I love how it turned out.. the leather was a scrap but was big enough to cover the 3 books which were held in place with elastic hair bands and have enough to have a flap to fold over the front, which i didn’t trim and left it in the shape it was..

I have to say I do love it, but want to make another, this time actually stitching it onto the leather cover rather than with the elastic as I think I would prefer it to be more secure..

I think I will make up my own signatures for the next book too.. that should be fun and I have just the right paper in mind for it too πŸ™‚

I was going to keep this blog post for tomorrow, but I was that excited about making it that I just had to share it with you tonight!

Thanks for popping in
