Another journal on its way ....

I had some ready made hard covered blank journals with me, so thought I might as well use them. Also had the one and only cover page for Graphic 45's "A Ladies Diary". I seem to have a few of those for some reason. Thought I might as well use them up. I don't really like using a ready made journals - especially with rings because there is always that 'gap'. However, I think with lots of ribbon, flowers and some bling, no one will notice the white strip down the side. I've just begun and really have no idea where I'm going with it after this. I guess we will see tomorrow. So far it looks like this ...

I'm beginning with the front inside cover because "Google Chrome" (ghrrrrr) insists upon it.  I made a pocket, put a vintage postcard in it saying "If this diary is found please return to:"

The lovely Victorian Lady with the hat and parasol wouldn't fit on this smaller format, so had to improvise.  

A better shot with no shadows


Also made some envelopes today out of lovely hand made paper ...


And some small envelopes to put your secrets in and hide them away in your journal.  Love these.  They are made from old ledger paper.

The little pink one will probably go in "A Lady's Diary"

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  It's lovely here - hope the weather is gorgeous where you are so you can get outside.  Thanks so much for dropping in.  It truly is a privilege to have so many followers and want to say thank you to you all for being here.  When I began this blog I truly thought I would be a person who would last less than three months!  It's been a wonderful surprise to me to meet such wonderful, like minded people   Do leave a comment if you have even the slightest urge to do so.  I love reading what you think.

Very creative envies to tuck in your secrets for the journal pages. A Ladies Diary is the perfect journal to hold lots of personal notes and secrets. Hope the dentist trip wasn't unpleasant.

Lovely -- can't wait to see what else you do! Those little envelopes are gorgeous and what a great idea to put them in an art journal for little secrets! Your larger envelopes are out of this world pretty!
