Club Scrap Shibori Linky Party

Welcome to the Club Scrap Linky Party
sharing with you projects with the
April Shibori kit.

My project this month is a travel journal
made into a diary.
For this I cut a piece of the white paper 8.5 x 11 inch
and folded it with a 1/2 inch book back.
Then i used some of the printed paper to cover
the front and the back. I haven't really finished
the album, because I think that happens along
the way using it, but this is sort of the base.
Here you see all of the cover.
On the back I made a whole in the center
and i added some elastic ribbon as a closure.
For adding the pages I made some holes in
the bookback with eyelets and added more
elastic siver ribbon.
Here a view of the inside:
pocket on the left, the stamped pages.

Here a close up on the pocket, that I made with the
stencil from the kit.
I added white gesso over the blue paper.

Next I added blue and brown ink
and let it drie completely.
Inside the pocket I added one of the cut aparts from the kit
for some journaling. Now I am going to show you how 
i made the diary pages.
More use of the stencil, for I used it to decorate all
the inside pages. For this I used some regular copy paper
and blue and brown ink.

After the stenceling I used the Shibori rubber stamps
to make spaces for the days of the week.

With a black pen I wrote the days of the week.

The left part is done and the right part I leave for
some new ideas.

Here some finished pages with a little more stamping.

This is the back page. In the middle you see the
knot of the elastic silver ribbon from the closure.
Again use of the stencil and also a sentiment from the
cut apart. The border is a piece of washi tape
that also came with this kit.

I hope you also look on the
to see all the other wonderful artwork.

Thanks for looking at my project
and have a creative day!

Lots of techniques going on in this journal. I need to get out my embossing paste and use it. Thanks for the inspiration.
