I shared a peak at the cover page of the memory keeper I made for my nieces first baby on my last post.
I thought it would be fun to share the remaining pages along with pictures of my garden in my posts this week. I love making these journals. Each one takes on a personality of it's own.
The papers I used are from various lines of Webster'sPages paper. They are so beautiful on their own that you really don't have to do anything to them but as usual my more is more attitude kicked in. The crepe paper flower was a happy accident. When I first placed it on the page it seemed to overwhelm the layout so I started scrunching it down in size. The white color still stood out in contrast with the rest of the elements so I added a spritz or two of coffee colored glimmermist. Now it's one of my favorite pages in the entire book.
My desire is for these books to be used to capture memories so I've started to add a little "photo" stamp to the areas intended for pictures.
And a lined sheet on the companion page for a little journaling. Even if it's just the date and occasion.
The journals start with a worn, vintage look to them but my hope is that they will also show the love that only the turning of pages can produce.
Thank you for all the warm welcome back to blogspot wishes. It feels good to be back in my craft studio again. I can't wait to share the rest of this beautiful journal and other projects with you in the days to come.
Creatively yours, Patty
