When packing for my trip to Florida with my sisters and the wedding in New Hampshire, I decided that my sisses and I needed travel journals to work on during down time.
So, I customized a couple of the Nature's Blessing journals for them in colors and styles I knew they would like.
(By the way, there are still a couple left if you'd like one too. $30, US postage included. Or if you'd like a customized one too, please add $15 to pay for the bumped up supplies)
I also packed markers, papers, glues, etc for working on pages beach side.
If you'd like a custom book, let me know what colors you like and I'll add some extras to your cover- old jewelry, more flowers, extra charms, and those sort of special touches.
I made a very special one for the guncles as a wedding gift too. This is a one of a kind book, since I used the original painting on it. The cover is an old book, covered in vintage papers, and painted with metallic gold, then dry brushed with taupe, and inked in forrest green. Over that, I layered the other elements, and coated it all with a water based, clear varnish.
The wedding took place during leaf peeping season in NH, so, I used that theme on the book too. These velvet leaves were green, and I inked them up to make them more colorful.
Here is the back of the book.
In my online class, Creating Art Journals, I have a segment about making a journal from an old book, if you are interested in making one yourself.
Here is the inside cover. And the pages are all cold pressed watercolor paper. I can't wait to see the happy pictures that Randy fills this album with!
