My online art journal group, Blissfully Art Journaling, is having a secret santa swap. There's a $5 limit on what we can spend, and it should be handmade in some way -- the perfect opportunity to get creative plus use some things in my stash!
To decorate the cover, I used some vintage lace, adhered with therm-o-web red tape sheets. I had a tag I'd made last year with a favorite photo of a little girl and her doll, and I adhered that with the red tape, also. A thin lace ribbon ties it all together.
After gluing, I decorated these pages with washi tape and images I've saved from favorite magazines. Then I created six small, beribboned tags, one for each pocket, with a bit of decoration and enough room for my secret friend to write quotes or notes.
I hope my secret santa friend enjoys using this journal as much as I enjoyed creating it. She'll find out very soon who she is, as I'm putting it in the mail tomorrow!!
I'm going to attempt to put the journal prompt pages in my sidebar. If you don't see them there, that means I wasn't successful - but if you would like a copy, email me and I'll send them to you.
