My challenge entry







I made a journal using the picture.

Aged the photo and collaged the cover with lace, paper scraps, stamping and trims.

The pages are made from watercolor paper, stained on the edges, each has a small vintage motif added.

I created a sewn binding and tied my journal with vintage ribbon accented with glitter.

Thanks to Beachys Cape Cod Cupboard for this. I did enjoy the challenge.
