vintage journal book

TADA, this is the special project that I was talking about in one of my previous posts.

I made this journal for my mum’s birthday (told you that November was a busy month)
I made an A5 sized journal where I alternated blank writing pages with printed pages and art pages.
I tea dyed the blank pages to fit in with the printed pages which have a vintage look and on which  I stamped inspiring words from a stamp set from Andy Skinner.

A couple of the art pages I already showed in a previous post, here are a few more

This page is made out of pieces of gelli prints
I covered the chipboard for the cover with one of the prints, added a broad ribbon and some flowers made out of fabric which I didn’t need to sew but rather glue (ideally because I can’t sew)(see tutorial)

I’m pleased how it turned out and more important my mum was thrilled.


  1. Thanks a lot, I've had this book in my head for ages now and it turned out as I wanted it to be.

  2. Love your journal!!! Especially how you used your Gelli prints to make a really interesting collage. I think Gelli prints are one of the most interesting elements you can use. Makes each piece of art a one of a kind piece. Keep up the good work.....Barbie

    1. You're so wrigth that gelli prints are unique and i also love using them because I'm not afraid as I am with bougth papers.
