It's a Magpie day today at Country View Crafts, and the theme is to use up your scraps. I must admit to having the odd bag or two of offcuts, so this is what I came up with.
I've recently bought the wonderful Art Journal Freedom book by Dina Wakley and she has a full step by step on how to make this journal with scraps. I'm not going to give away any secrets, other than you NEED this book.
Here's my pile of scraps, it was fun looking through them and remembering what I originally made.
My sewing machine was a real hero!
And here's the inside.
I have to admit it took me hours to make, but I really enjoyed it. It was one of those projects that I looked at and though 'I can't do that', but I did and and really happy with it.
Hope you like it, and thanks very much for looking x
