New Journals

The kids are back in school and I got back to work! The above journals are 4 x 6". The pages are Canson Watercolor Paper and are sewn in. The binding is fabric over linen. They are very sturdy and lay completely flat when opened up. Beads hang from the spines.

Summer is coming to an end!

It's been a great summer at the Carvalho home, although it has flown by. School is only days away now. I am both sad and ready!

On the art front: I have been making journals. The one above is a small purse-size. It still needs a few embellishments which I will do today but I wanted to go ahead and share it. It has lovely watercolor paper bound in and the spine is fabric over linen, strong and stiff! I hope to finish a few others today as well and will post them later if I do.

Happy end of summer! Do something artsy today!!
