The newest junk journal is complete! This one is an ocean/mermaid themed journal, and I tried a few new things. A new technique involving tissue paper and Heat-N-Bond, and doing some hand lettering of quotes in the book. I really liked the hand lettering, and I may do more of it. I love finding quotes that match the book, so that was a fun addition.
This one is also, as many of my journals are, made with lots of room to write and add your own thoughts. If you want to see how the whole thing came out, here’s the flip through video:
I’m hard at work on my next journal – which is a garden journal with an 18th and 19th century vibe. I really love this one, and I’m trying to incorporate more new techniques and ideas.
The First Craft Show
I’m also signed up to do a craft show in Chesapeake next weekend, and I’m a little nervous. I’ll have the ocean journal, the garden journal, and hopefully at least one more (maybe two) as well as my greeting cards and other papercrafts. I’m not sure how it will go, as this is my first Nessie Craft show. If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello – it will be at Western Branch Middle School in Chesapeake, VA from 9 am to 3 pm on March 3.
