When I made the first one I made loads of notes on the techniques I wanted to improve on, so although I am still not where I want to be with these journals, the finish on this one is a definite improvement on the first.
I used the fabric which I dyed a couple of weeks ago when I was so inspired by Jane Dunnewolds DVD's. The cover is made from a linen fabric. The spine and decoration on the front are cottons and the slashed piece is muslin. I used felt tip pen to 'doodle' on the cotton before stitching down.
