Journal and Album for Becc

Becc, the owner of Dextress Hair asked me to make a journal cover for her mum for Mother's Day - we got our 'wires crossed' because she actually wanted an album with inserts instead.  I ended up doing both.  Colour theme purple/lavender/mauve and cream.


The colours are quite deceptive in the photographs.  They all blended very well for the project.  I tied the journal with some crinkled rayon ribbon (easier to keep loose papers inside the journal if necessary).

This is the best photo with regard to the true colour
Full front of journal with bookmark
I bought the two-toned purple lace from Fabric Collection

View of back of journal - once again the purple flower is a much nicer shade than depicted here - I made this using a Tim Holtz dye which cuts through the fabric very easily

the finished photo album is 6x6 but looks larger because has a wide spine
Beautiful lace is from Bella Paperie
