So imagine how pleased I was to find that the video tutorial for making one of your own was on sale. My excitement was contained just long enough to download the tutorial and within minutes I was watching the simple instructions. You don't need to be an expert sewer by any means but you do need a sewing machine and be able to wield a hammer (Darn those eyelets!)
I have certainly got my moneys worth from this green spotty fabric I bought it as an offcut and have lost count of the amount of projects I've used it for. It's a Mary Engelbreit one for Moda. The button is covered in Amy Butler fabric and the inside of the journal is natural canvas.
I used a selection of different papers for my pages which are mainly 12"x9" with some inclusions of tags, record cards, postcard.
And here is my first page.......
Inspiration: the fusion of intellectual and emotional activity which control one's creative
I've realised that once I've cut shapes out using my Silhouette the waste make brilliant templates.
If you would like to make your own inspiration journal the video workshop is currently $10 for which I paid a little over £6.
I'm hoping to add more to my inspiration journal soon.
