Making Journals

Some time ago I won a sweet journal from
Deena at Nestled in the Singing Woods. It had been made out of a composition book.  You know, the kind with the black and white speckles and they usually cost a $1.00 or so.  After I had used that one up I made several others based on that idea.  Today I finished this one, different than the rest because it's painted instead of covered with paper.
After I got this one finished I started another one, a little softer colors.....
.........but it will be pretty, too.  These are so much fun I'm thinking of going into production, maybe set up a table at a Christmas bazaar.............mmmmmm, that sounds like a lot of work!   It's fun when you don't feel pressured!                            Diane

Diane, your journals are very pretty and I'll bet they'd sell out at a bazaar. Last Christmas I bought handmade journals for both my nieces - they were well-priced and well-made. That little one with the eggs is a winner!
