3 Journals Ive made for the wonderful Fiona Jennings

Fiona Jennings is an incredible lady who has been a great inspiration to me in my crafting.  She is no normal crafter by any stretch of the imagination and she can pretty much make anything out of nothing.  She has a brilliant youtube channel under the name of Jennings644 and a fabulous Etsy store which she calls Freestyle-Crafts and can be found here.  She sells the most beautiful flowers and lovely vintage items.  If you fancy seeing something a little different, pop over to her youtube channel or her store.

These are the journals she requested.  She wanted 2 purple and 1 pink in a vintage style.  So hopefully Fiona and her friends will like them.  I did my best with the photos but unfortunately they dont do the books justice.  But see what you think.  Unfortunately the colours havent come out perfectly either, the purples look more blueish in colour.....but they are purple, I promise Fiona!!

These are all hand bound by me, signatures made, pages sewn, covers and spine made, books bound and decorated all by me!  Embellished with my handmade flowers except for the wee foam roses, I have yet to master those.....but give me time!!

All 3 together




Inside front covers, envelopes for keepsakes

Letters painted lilac colour and crackle accents over


Name plates have corresponding colours, embossed gold borders

My hand made flowers and bought foam roses

Embossed the bead purple to correspond with colour scheme

Flowers are purple NOT blue as shown in the photo

Tiny pink flower for the corner of the journal

So there you have it.  Im disappointed the flowers dont show the proper colours and detail of the journals.  I hope Fiona likes them and her friends of course.

Thanks for looking and any comments are greatly appreciated.  Loops xx
