I have A LOT of fabric. Quite a bit is vintage, with pastels and lots of lace. So I decided, it was time to put together a Shabby Chic Vintage All Fabric Junk Journal.
Lately, I have been using old books for the covers of my journals. I wanted to challenge myself to make a different type of journal. Firstly, looking for ideas on YouTube, I was inspired by ARTEmaze and how she put together her fabric book. There are 3 parts to this YouTube tutorial and it was perfect for my challenge.
Rather than going through the complete process for making this journal, I am posting a flip through with a detailed description of each photo. I am in the process of doing a tutorial on how I made this on my YouTube channel.
