Paper Arts

I just finished embellishing a 3 ring binder for a friend with paper. She is writing her life memoirs and wanted something to put them in. It was fun to take her wedding picture and some pretty paper and start creating!! I used some paper with roses on it (Goldies favorite flower!) and cut arouun some of it with an exacto knife to allow some of it to spill on to the wedding photo. I printed the wedding picture on regualr photo paper but then tore the edgges to make it look old. I took self laminating sheets and covered the finished cover and back so it can be wiped off occasionaly and the paper won't tear or get stained. I like to add a little ribbon embellishment because I love whimsy!! I've read what she's journaled so far and her life is so interesting. I believe here in the community they are starting a journaling class in February. I think I'll take it!

I always look at the clearance section at Target and various stores for notebooks and notepads that I can create…
