Beauty Journal

Hello and welcome,
Yes I am still very much alive and well. It's been a while between posts as I have been extremely busy preparing for a new store I am opening......all will be revealed shortly. I have to ensure everything is in order before I show you.

I do have something I can share,  another journal which was given to a friend of mine for her birthday.
The exterior is covered with Tissue Paper and I have added Tim's Distress Sprays. I have also used one of Tim's Ornate Plates.

On the interior I have used a Tim Holtz ring binder and large Cabinet cards, all the papers were tea dyed by hand.

To close the journal I used dyed Seam Binding, which I forgot to photograph.

Thank for stopping by.
