What I did today with my funky journal pages






I am having way too much with the journal pages. I woke up in the middle of the night and decided to play for awhile. I continued after going to 2 soccer games/practice back-to-back this morning. I have to tell you that 8 am practices on a Saturday morning sucks. I went to Hobby Lobby afterwards to get some thread. I am grooving on some multicolored thread that they had. I bought all bright colors so the stitching would show. I am still not too good at the sewing thing. The fabric kind of bunches up (doesn't lay flat) near the end of my sewing the borders so I just fold it over and run it over a few times in the middle so it is not puffy. Adds to the funk. The journal is really shaping up. I will do a few more things to the pages and then will try the signature thing. Will post that when I am done with that. Still working on how I want my cover to look. I am thinking about some metal embossing and putting it on the cover with that red tape or maybe some brads. I got some really colorful strips of cloth for the border with the hook rug grid.
