So for my project I decided to make a bird journal. I started with a chipboard album that I covered with an assortment of papers from my stash (Pink Paislee, Glitz and Bo Bunny). On the cover I used Tim's Sizzix Bird Branch die, cut from grungeboard and colored with distress ink, as well as a small bird's nest embellishment. Underneath the die cut is a distressed image from the Artistic Outpost's Birds of a Feather stamp set. The journal label was die cut with Tim's Movers and Shapers mini labels die.
On the inside journal pages I added glassine envelopes that hold ATC sized cards. On the backs of the cards I stamped lines for journaling about bird sightings! Some of the envelopes also hold die cut flowers, birds and other ephemera. The pages were also randomly stamped with various bird-related images. On each page space has been left for photographs, or drawings, of birds.
Journals of this type are a work-in-progress for a long time with me. I'll sit it aside and at some point when I'm working on another project I'll get an idea to add something . Hopefully, I'll be able to share the finished journal with you in the near future!
