Hello Beautiful world!
During these very difficult times, I try to think of something beautiful. That is when I thought of my friend Heather Jacob. As an artist, you may know her. I wanted to create something for Heather that she would be able to use as a keepsake because she inspires me so. This is just a little thank you for all of that inspiration. And also for the beautiful conversations, we have once in a while. Heather is like a little ray of sunshine on a rainy day. She makes the world a little brighter with her smile. I have the pleasure of working with her once again.
For this journal, I used the Serendipitous collection. The soothing green colors paired with blue/grays and purples are gorgeous. The greens are the colors Heather uses often. The photo is Heather and her twin sister Lorraine, who she lost to cancer last year. Tucked inside the journal is a small pink ribbon in memory of Lorraine.
For the spine, I used the 6×6 Archival Board in Treasure. Because it is white, there was no need to prep it before I heat embossed it using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Oakleaf Olive embossing powder. It fit perfectly on the spine. The flowers Are Enchanted Petals and Garden Petals in Mint. I simply love the little seed pods in the floral collection.
For the pages, I used a lot of fussy cut flowers, butterflies and fern from Vintage Artistry Flora and Fauna paper. I die cut the envelopes that slip into the pocket pages. Each envelope contains a post card sized paper from the serendipitous papers. They can be used for journaling or mounting photos. There are lots of tea dyed papers for photos and journaling as well.
I truly enjoyed creating this keepsake for my dear friend. I hope you have all been inspired to share a little love with someone who touches your heart. Lord knows we all need a little unexpected love now and then…xo
