I made a journal bag

I used canvas, cheesecloth acrylic paint and walnut ink, split rings and an old strap I stole off another bag. I used a Scottish pin from my mom to adorn the front. I will likely work on it some more as its not completely done yet but I was keen to show it off. :)

Open to the journal. The cover slips into a sleeve.

Patti, I've been scrolling through your journal pages, and they are wonderful (especially the twin profiles facing eachother), but this journal bag is incredible! The oldness of it, the walnut stain, the simple adornment on the front. So beautiful! If you ever would think of making one to sell, I would love to buy it from you! Have a wonderful Sunday! Roxanne
