Continuing my minimally embellished journals project. I've had this beauty from Anthropologie for a few years - love the silver metallic covers and those cool closures.
This one has a French theme. Again, these are simple page embellishments, designed to eliminate some of the blank-page anxiety for people new to journalling . The pages are light-weight paper that wouldn't hold up to much paint, ink or glue , so I've kept to things that don't require pages prepped with gesso to avoid anything showing through the reverse side of the page.
Here are a few pages:
Love this set of Cavallini French ephemera washi tapes.
Added a stamped fleur-de-lis to Frenchy-up this note card.
An inside pocket embellished with a Cavallini envelope. It's probably obvious that I love all things Cavallini!
I bought all of these vintage cloth tags at Michael's .
I stamped this on a Gelli print, then cut the diamond shapes apart. I've used this stamp so many times - it is an unmounted red rubber one - no name !
A pocket for some more strips of that Cavallini tape to use in journal.
And another pocket at the end for more treasures. I love raiding my stash for things to use in these journals. Clears up space for new stuff!!
