Deb's Journal

I taught a fabric and lace journal cover class at Bella Paperie recently.  Of course, no two finished pieces were alike. Great fun indeed. Deb chose the image and colours for this journal, and given time limitations for her, I offered to complete her journal - very enjoyable with a beautiful outcome.

Completed Journal with ribbon closure

The cover can be removed when using journal or to add to a new journal at a later point

Base - old doily, then gathered a lace strip to form a circle,
next a flower cut from another doily, then the middle of a flower I pulled apart with a
beautiful pearl embellishment to complete
