For some journals I use fabric scraps for the covers and filled the pages with tags, scrap paper bits and fun word stickers and tickets.
For a few journals, I use pretty batik fabrics for the covers. I don’t like making bed quilts with batiks, but they look good on journals or mini quilts.
I cut into my stash of pretty hand-made papers that are vibrant and go so well with the batik covers. Under the hand-made paper pages are little pockets created with security envelopes, floral printed papers and snippets of life that I have collected and finally have a home in these journals.
