The Book Of Love...

On my travels I'm going to try and keep a little journal, not a dear diary type thing but just noting the places I've been, the things I've done and what I have liked.  I decided to do this mainly because my memory is AWFUL! I went traveling for a year around Australia a couple of years ago and do you think I can remember names of places? No, so this time I'll make sure I have something to refer back to.

A couple of posts ago I showed you how to decorate a notebook with material, only this time I didn't mix the PVA with water and I didn't paint over the material with PVA.  I think it came out rather lovely juvely, with no bubbles whatsoever, so this is definitely my preferred method.  What do you guys think?

It's not particularly 'travel' inspired material, but hey, it's prettier than a plain ol' sketch book.

Anyone else got anything crafty DIY's to share?

Love the notebook, so pretty, I always like to keep notebooks but I am terrible at keeping up with them! I've been doing a lot of sewing projects lately, finally working through my big bag of clothes I need to alter :)

Pretty fabric! I always keep travel journals too- it keeps the memories alive!

I should have a travel journal too! Even in Barcelona where I went 2 years ago I can't remember much :| especially names of places.

Nice work!

Aww this is a really good idea. I tried to keep a "positivity" journal once, where I just wrote about stuff I liked and made lists and pasted in pictures of things I liked, but I never seemed to have time. I should go back to that.
