Those lilacs are from the bush in my backyard.
I did tear out a few pages from one of my vintage Winnie The Pooh books for this journal - which caused me a great deal of anxiety. I have a real problem destroying books. I love books so so much - especially old ones.
forgot about this little pocket below and stitched right over the left side. dang. now it's just a little bitty pocket.
I really love edging some of the paper with decorative punches.
eek, another vintage page Riiiiipppppped out. hhhhh. but I do love them in this journal so that makes it okay I guess.
I put a lot of velum in this journal too. A few pages I left 8 1/2 x 11, but mostly I made little places to journal with them and pockets.
I left some of these envelope flaps on because I though it would give me another place to journal.
