First journals online

It's been a while, life was really busy, but I finally managed to put my first journal in my shop. These journals are based on the Remains of the Day class I took. They are mainly made from found papers, some are thick card stock papers, while others are thin magazine pages. They have lots of flaps, pockets, clip art, old and new ephemera, stitched onto the pages. It has enough space though to make them your own with your pictures, journaling bits and scraps of paper, etc. I will list other journals this week, I had a blast making them!
The cover is made of an old shopping tote, fabric pieces and a vintage embroidery of a little cottage collaged and stitched together, it has a little German brooch. This journal is made with a shabby chic, tattered feel.
This journal is about strong women of the world. That's why my mum is on the cover :)
