Round Robin - Round 6

Do you remember where this adventure began?
Way back in January,
I created this journal for
Kindred Souls Art Group's
Journal Round Robin.
I used an antique book cover,
created pages with water color paper,
which I secured with ribbons tied around the spine.

I finished off the ribbon ends with antique and vintage trinkets.
You can revisit my original post here.

I was honored beyond words,
when our group's founder
asked if I would create the cover for her journal!

I began with and old quilt scrap,
and layered laces and buttons,
images, and baubles.

I so loved the look of the tied trinkets,
from my journal,
that I used the idea again
for Gloria's journal.
This time the ribbons are purely decorative,
as the pages are secured using binder rings.

Back inside cover view.

Back outside cover view.

I tried to include many of Gloria's requests,
lace,
pink and cream,
birds,
crowns,
keys.
The little crochet flower on the cover
was even crocheted by my little ole' hands :0)

I have to confess that I had a great deal of angst
over taking on responsibility for someone else's cover,
but I enJOYed the process.
I hope Gloria will be happy
once her journal finds its way back home to her.

I will be linking here:



I hope you are enJOYing a lovely holiday weekend
filled with family, friends,
love and Blessings,
Kimberly
