I got a really sweet, 5-year journal
that had awful paper; I even left a review
. No "Before" pictures, (I know!
Bad blogger!) so click on the link to see what it looked like before I gutted it. And here's the "After" :
|I googled different photos & chose this for the cover.|
This is for my friend Christen.
The book was that pretty teal blue, but I used a metallic gold
around the edges. Kinda went a little crazy with it, here's the back of book:
Spine with a little heart charm:
Pocket on inside cover of Mother Mary, laminated. I did 5 inserts; the first with another Mother Mary image:
And then the next 4 inserts were each of the archangels:
Back of AA Michael & front of AA Raphael:
Back pocket is AA Raphael with some extra pictures:
These were extras that I had laminated. It was hard choosing which pictures to use for this project. There is so much beautiful art work through the centuries!
I didn't want to post this until after I'd given it to Christen, and then I forgot until I remembered.
You can turn any book into a travelers notebook. So if you like a cover, but not the contents, give it a go!
