Because this is a journal, I'm posting it here even though the cover is made of fabric and is quilted...it's still a journal. I do hope I've picked the right spot. *shrug*

I've seen so many great fabric covered journals and I couldn't resist trying my hand at it. It measures 9 1/2" x 12" when closed and has three signatures inside, containing a total of 20 sheets (40 if counting front and back) of Fabriano Artistico 140# Hot Press Watercolor paper. Doing something different, I folded the sheets into odd sizes and some have 2" or 3" fold overs just to add interest.

Let me know what you think...


The front


And who doesn't love a pink heart? LOL


The back


With the fold-over closure opened up


Opened completely, showing the awesome Fabriano Artistico 140# hot press watercolor paper inside, just ready for some great art journaling to begin! WOOT!
Thanks so much for looking.
C&C greatly appreciated!

Peace & Love,
~Barb~
