December Daily Journal...

I started my journal for December. I ended up making a very simple, ribbon bound journal. This cover is cotton fabric backed with Sticky Back Canvas that I misted. The inside pages are pieces of kraft paper - leftovers from Michael's paper mill. Here's how it turned out...


The cover is plain for now, but I plan to do some stitching on the front and decorate it more as the month goes on...

On the inside I used a variety of different blue and purple mists on the cover. It's just one signature - (pile of paper) that I folded in half; punched two holes with a cropadile, and strung ribbon through. Super simple!


Inside the back cover I used a moon and stars stencil I got ages ago from Stampin Up...

Here are the first two entries...

I like the 'grunge' feeling of this journal Michelle, and the simplicity of just one signature... the paper is awesome too! Good idea to take this kind of craft paper for a change - I always work on plain (white) paper myself but it might be good for me to step out of my comfort zone and bind a book with coloured paper sometime...
