BINGO - HANDMADE JOURNAL OVER TAPES


I thought you might like to see another journal I've finished.

This one's called BINGO for two reasons:
  1. I've used a bingo card on the cover
  2. Bingo! She's got her man! Held down very firmly with a heavy hand on his shoulder. She may have been a long time waiting, and there's no way he's getting away from her!

I've upcycled and repurposed the covers from an old book, and stitched in an eclectic assortment of papers: vintage, scrapbooking, sheet music, childrens' books, art paper. All sizes and shapes, with pockets and fold-out pages for even more journalling.

I've put in blank tags for demonstration purposes, to show where the pockets are

This one was a lot of fun to do, and in fact I've made a couple more while I was at it. Pix to follow shortly.

  3. Thanks so much, both of you!

    Marjie - it was the expression on her face... that piece kind of made itself.
