Another cover---while I was at it...





I decided to make another cover just so I could solidify in my mind how to make one. I decided to do some lettering for the inside cover. I was going to use this for the outside cover but I got going with the writing and hated to cover it all up with fabric strips. I have started gathering for the pages and it truly is wide open what you can do at this point. But sometimes wide open can be harder than-- not wide open (for me anyway)...too many choices and decisions sometimes. That's when I just have to rely on intuitition or I get a huge pain in my head trying to decide. Oh decisions decisions...The lettering is upside down on this one. Note to self...c'est le vie!

Martha, You know you can make $$ from these, right? {Big Grins} Purses, journals, small notebooks...You have an etsy shop or you're selling somewhere else, right?
That lettered one is AWESOME. More, please...

I love these covers Martha! A messenger style bag would be very cool, or how about a pen/brush holder that rolls up. I can come up with a list for you! :-)

So inviting, full and interesting. One could almost take the cover and frame it by itself...beautiful!
