Spring blossoms journal

I just love pink and green together (peach and green, too, for that matter). It was great to use green in a journal, period. I used a light green fabric for the end pages and a forest green card stock for the first page of all seven signatures. I used a different stitch on the binding that I thought turned out pretty cool, although the paper looks a lot shabbier than it should where I was stitching. I hope to use this stitch again with better paper. I got this fabric in will always remind me of my sisters and how alike yet strikingly different we all are. :)

Jellyfish fields mini notebook

Here's my version of jellyfish fields made of felt and embroidery. I'm not sure it's possible in this medium...they just look sorta wrong, not as wispy and fragile that I was going for. Anyway, it was fun to make. :)
