My partner in this swap is Laura. She decided to use the notebook as a journal. When I saw this CiaoBella Romantic Time paper I knew I had to work with it!!!
On the front cover are two of Renea Bouquet's lovely birds, I believe they are doves.
I painted and distressed a metal keyhole and a pair of keys. I added the keys to a ribbon to use as a book marker.
I covered the black binding of the composition notebook with white duct tape prior to adding lace over the binding. Gotta love duct tape....it holds together so much of my home!!! heehee
I added some flowers and a long flourish of pearls and tried to not cover the beauty of the paper.
I added pockets on the front and back using vellum.
Added tags with quotes I felt related to journaling and rather than adding ribbon, I added metal thingys to keep them as flat as possible.
Thank you for taking a looksie and Donna thank you for yet another wonderful swap! I really enjoyed!!!
