Summer Floral Journal

This journal is for the Summer Home Decor Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Make some time to play along won’t you? I’m planning on making it part of a desk set for a partner I’m swapping with so she can keep it out as part of her summer decor.

I started with a nice but too plain journal from Michaels. The cover had a purple binding, lilacs and yellow stripes with the scallops and cut outs and that’s it. I added the music paper, lace, ribbons, flowers, pearls, doily, stick pins with beads and buttons. This also makes a great hostess gift; I took one with me last night when I was invited out since I made two!

Enjoy, Rebecca

This is lovely, Rebecca. I like how your doily echoes the cut-outs on the album, and the floral bouquet is VERY summery. Can't wait for the warmer weather.
