Scrappy Journal Part 2

scrappy art journal

Yesterdays post showed you how I use the paper cloths/towels that I clean up with to create pages from which I made this Scrappy Journal.

The quick and easy cover was made with a mop up cloth folded over some batting, that was stitched around the open edges and then decorated with stamps.

I made six mini books (signatures) and stitched them into the cover.

Each section had been stamped and stitched.....

I finished off by adding torn strips of fabric to the spine. My daughter thinks I over did it this, but once I had started I couldn't leave any bald spots!
This was very easy and a lot of fun to do.
Lots more photos here.

  1. That is fun! I'll definitely have to try this...

  2. well, maybe a little over the top, or not. love the colors.

  3. Hello! This is adorable and so neat - great colors. I know some kids who would feel like magical princesses if they had such a thing. *Maybe* it didn't need the fringe, but you make it how you like!

    I found you through Mary Nasser's Art Blog Hop: http://www.marycnasser.com/art-blog-hop.html which is just the coolest thing, and I am working my way through all of them from the bottom. :)

  5. Wow this is beautiful! The colours are amazing and we really like this fringing on the spine, makes it look even more interesting!
    This has really inspired us to make some funky books!

  6. It is not over the top, it is perfect. I love every part that you have shown us. You have an eye for detail. Love it love it love it.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
