When Bobbie, Sissy and I go on our annual sister trip to Siesta Key, we pack craft supplies and I make journals for us to work in. My suitcase is 90% tools, lace, ribbons, ephemera, and other pretties to foof the books.
Although, they do start out pretty foofy already. The spine is all decked out in beachy toned trims.
The theme this year is Beach. The first year it was Blessings, last year it was Witchy Girls
Each one is a little different than the others. But all are covered in silk wallpaper (that I waxed for durability) and are made in the same colors.
I painted these little frames in ombre blues with glitter, so we can take photos of ourselves on the beach and add those to the covers. (I packed my portable printer)
The interiors are made up of scrapbook papers. They are heavy card stock and can be covered or used as is. Bobbie's has this black and white Harlequin pattern.
Sissy's has wallpaper roses.
There is already a little bit of trim added and I packed a two gallon sized bag full of ribbons and lace to really make these special and drip with vintage goodness galore.
I'll be sure and get photos of finished pages as we go along. More to come!
