Journals, Journals, Journals
You do realize with this being the end of week 37 there are only 15 weeks left before the end of the year.
That being said...
This time around I made two more Dos-A-Dos books and four pamphlet style journals. It was more about embellishing the covers and using different types of paper for the pages.
I made one for a little girl that has pages for drawing and four for watercoloring.
The other side has plain paper for journaling.
I made one for a little boy that also has pages for drawing and watercoloring and the other side has regular paper for journaling as well.
On my post of August 27th, I had bought some additional scrapbook paper to make more Dos-A-Dos Books, but I changed my mind and decided to make pamphlet style journals instead and embellish them.
I added clock hands to the the pamphlet with the clock, a tag for the star pamphlet, a bow for the owl and a paper doily and button for the one on the bottom right.
I also used different types of paper for the pages...
For the clock, I used Toned Tan paper from Strathmore for the pages,
the star pamphlet with the tag, cream color writing paper for journaling,
and although it is hard to tell, I used Strathmore's Toned Grey for the owl.
Last, but certainly not least, I used Strathmore Artagain paper for these pages. Great for chalk, pastels, white pens and Sakura Gellyroll pens.
I had a lot of fun making these and using different papers for my pages. I also had fun embellishing the covers. I might see if I can find some really fun scrapbook paper I can really embellish and some odd and unusual papers for the pages.
With Christmas just around the corner, I may make more of the Dos-A-Dos books for stocking stuffers.
